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?
