So I was looking around task manger and I then came across something called "Resource monitor" I went on to it because I needed it for unparking CPUs and stuff but I was curious to know why it has a  table listing 7 CPUs when I only have obviously 1 CPU. Is that meant to mean cores? If so my CPU is a quad core so I don't know why it has listed 7 of them when I have 4 cores. Anyone know what that means? Thanks.

Look again and I think you'll see that it actually lists 8 CPUs (0 through 7  :wink: )

You machine (probably) has 4 cores but 8 "logical processors," courtesy of Hyper-Threading

I think I understand now why it has listed 8 logical cores. Would that have anything to do with why they called the Intel processor a Intel core i7 processor (not including CPU 0) because it has 7 logical processors?
