    Yes you have a dual core

  • krisno, that's a Prescott processor. It's a single core CPU with hyperthreading support. Hyperthreading makes it look to the OS like it's got 2 cores.

    Yes you have a dual core

  • There is a nice little tool, no installer, for CPU-Z. Show you pretty much everything you want to know about your processor(s)

  • Hi,

     

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, he does not have a dual core proccessor.  He has a processor that supports hyper threading which shows two cpu's in the task manager performance window but is not a true dual core cpu.

  • You are correct. All Pentium 4's are single core. Hyper threading available on some will make it appear as if there are two processors to all but software specifically designed to display physical instead of logical processors.

     

    Everything you ever wanted to know about your Pentium 4 is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_4

    if it shows up in the device manager as 2 CPU's it is most likely a 64 bit single CPU. A dual core would be marked P4 D-940 on the CPU a 3.2 g single I believe is P4 640 or 641. (It could also be a 3.2G Celeron)

     

    go to intels website and download the free processor ID utility and there wont be anymore guessing!

    Not only cpu info, but a lots more, agreat small util that CPU-Z, been using it on all our pc's.

  • hi

     

    there is old way to check if you have dual core or not

     

    go to the run then type cmd

     

    then on the dos prompt type this command ( systeminfo )

    and check the processors if you have 2 processor that's mean you have daul core on your pc

     

    if the processor give you just one that's mean you don't have .

     

    this command will give you all the information on your system

    like the bios , os manuf , os config , os build , product id , system , ram ,  update , network

     

    check it .

     

    and good luck

  • hey dude,

     

    I'm also not shure about that,

     

    so i did what u said and it gave me this message(obout processors):

     

    2 processors intaled

    (01):x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping

    (02):x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping

     

     

    so my one is dual-core?

    thanks

  • Umm, what does this have to do with Windows Home Server hardware?  And if you want to use this system for WHS then you don't want to also use it as a gaming machine.

  • hey,
    I had the same problem and I tried the way who said  typed "systeminfo" at command mode..
    it show I have two cores...
    but when I used the CPUZ, it told me that I have 1 core  ,2 threads

    so...

    I thought that it just mean my cpu is one core..

    My CPU information is listed below:
    Processer Name : Intel Pentium 4 630
    Package            : Socket 775 LGA

  • To complicate maters more, the "systeminfo" dos comand doesnt work with AMD processors as my dual core reports as only being one processor. I also use CPUZ and that reports all you need to know about your processor, memory and motherboard.

    or goto www.intel.com and search  for  ( processor ID utility )  , download and install it. Look for all the tab in the utility you will get all your answers.
