In the above sandybridge processor i see that Number of cores is 2 and number of threads is 4
Is this 4 threads per core or 2 threads in core1 and 2 threads in core 2?
Sorry if this question has been asked earlier.
Tomcandy, there are going to be 2 threads in 1 core. Please check the following link for additional information on this feature. I recommend you watching the video posted on that page Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
