that's how they show up, 2 cores are paired in a module and share a few things, a 4 core is 2 modules, a six core is 3 modules and an 8 core is 4 modules.
Thanks for clearing that up and explaining it. I could have been sure though that my Phenom II x4 955 always showed up as 4 cores.
Hi, I just purchased a Fx 4350 "Quad Core" CPU and it shows up everywhere as "Quad Core" except in task manager and a couple benchmarking tools where it says 2 cores 4 threads, is this supposed to be or did i get a dud?
It's 4 integer and 2 FPU. Simple as that. 4 real x86 integer cores. FPU does not count as X86 integer core.
First processors ever made did not have FPU and was still a core.
If I recall the FX cpu's have a core for each thread, but only one FPU for every 2 cores.
