Ryzen not using all cores or threads

Jump to solution

Capture.PNGI am using Ryzen 5 1600 and its only 3 cores and 6 threads (half of what the specs are). I have went through my bios and checked (I could have missed something) but it read that I had 6 cores. Could it be windows? Any help is appreciated!

I have actually fixed it! In msconfig it had autolocked the cores so I disabled that and now its running fine! Thanks for your help

Your CPU-Z is out of date and quite possibly not detecting it properly. Update to 1.80.

do you have smt enabled or disabled or on auto in bios? i have mine on auto, it takes a pretty heavy load to start using the multi threads.
