    my A10 7890k is only using 2 cores


      dear amd,


      I have a A10 7890k and it is only using 2 cores shown in task manager, and logical cores is 4(don't know what that means).

      my frames per second in games is also very low. does someone know what i can try?

      I already tried to go to msconfig and check the box and set it to 4 cores but when i restart then i got the blue screen and needed to reset my PC.


      Kind regards,

      Ties vd Kroon


      My specs:

      AMD a10 7890k

      gtx 1050 ti 4gb

      hyperx fury ddr3 1866MHz

      Gigabyte GA-f2A88XM-D3HP - 1.0

          Bulldozer derived processors have two, in this case, Steamroller Modules, each composed of two integer and one floating point processor, creating a two module, four integer core, two floating point core processor. As for why it's so slow, most applications were never optimized for the Bulldozer architecture, resulting in essential a slow dual core.

            What FPS do you have and what are your thermals like? Alot of these chips were thermal throttling out of the box without the proper coolers.
            I know that this was one of the SKU's that hit thermal throttles out of the box, but usually only when the GPU is also enabled.
