    FX-8350 using only 6-3 cores

      I just got a new PC a few months ago, I was using a FX-6300 but upgraded to a FX-8350 recently.

      I was wondering why the performance was the same, with almost no difference compared to the FX-6300.

      So I decided to check the performance on Task manager and CPU-Z.

      On CPU-Z it says that I'm using 6 cores, and on task manager 3 cores.

      My motherboard is a GA-970A-DS3P, and it says it's compatible with FX-8350 with the release BIOS version.

      Is this normal? Or maybe windows couldn't recognize the new processor?
