My A10-5800k is supposed to have 4 cores and a clock speed of 4.2GHz but on all of my benchmarks and on AMD Overdrive it says it only has 2 cores and a clock speed of 3.8GHz! Why is that??

I recently build my first PC on a budget and AMD was the obvious choice. I chose the A10-5800k APU on an MSi A78M-E35 MoBo and 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM. I ran some benchmarks and they all say that my APU onlyhas two cores instead of 4 and a much lower base clock speed. I would really appreciate any help from more experienced PC builders.
