    AMD FX-8350 Eight core,


      I can only see 4 cores when i have 8 cores why? some1 know?

        • Re: AMD FX-8350 Eight core,

          It should be showing up as 4 cores 8 threads (the same as Intel's i7 CPUs) this is because the integer cores on the piledriver architecture, although numbering 8, are arranged in pairs on the bulldozer modules where each pair shares a front and back end and a single FPU (even though that FPU is two separate fuse multiply add units) as such your operating system will see the 8350 as a hyperthreaded quad core able to use 8 integer threads but only 4 float threads
