keep in mind, there are a lot of different variables with different machines-and different games. There are some games that AMD six core, will outperform a intel quad, and vise versa, and theres a lot more to it, a lot could also be ones choice in motherboard, as well as video card, and RAM. with a 970, I wouldnt expect real high end performance, its not a high end card. I would have to see your friends specs along side yours to give you a more definite idea, if the performance difference is just because of hardware choices, or because theres something wrong with your system.
As far as your multiple cores, do you have the proper chipset drivers installed for your motherboard? And is your slowdown ONLY with chrome, or do you notice it with other internet browsers?

I have put this problem on 3 different forums and I just got done reinstalling Windows 10 and I now have all cores up and running. Thank you for any help that you have given me.

Original Windows installation must have got the Uniprocessor HAL somehow? Odd...
