Have you checked on XDA forums for tweak to fully activate your dual core? I am running EVO 3D one of the slower phones compared to your model. I installed CleanRom that clocked it from 1.2 to 1.5 Ghz.. But even than the second core was barely running getting about max of 384 mhz.. I used the XDA Developers tweak that turns on the second core now they both run at 1.51 Ghz on demand and that is how my performance is what it's at if you noticed the fps.. with speed boost I get about an average of 5 more fps but currently not even use speed boost now.
Storm20200 is using a GS2, so both core are synchronous, they always run at the same speed, no need to force the second core ON.
Really different from our Snapdragon CPU with it's asynchronous cores, that may have only one core working (supposed to save battery, but not really efficient...)
As for the Qualcomm asynchronous dual cores, I now don't really force CPU1 online since I've been running ICS. I mainly use SetCPU to set both minimum AND maximum CPU speed at 1.5 or 1.6ghz, I mean if I then force CPU1 online, it doesn't make any difference (when it was with Gingerbread)
Nice to know other ROMS are starting to put on demand.. Yeah the tweak I use does not force it on but actually forces it to use on demand properly.. so now the cpu will go down to 384mhz on both cores or 1.51 Ghz on both cores properly. But now if Shtruck can get dual core to work we should really get some performance but currently I see no difference with it on or off.
