Why does my Ryzen 5 2600X seem to have 12 cores in Windows task manager?

So, I bought a 2600X Ryzen 5 processor a few months back and it appears to have 12 cores built into it, at least, I believe it does considering that my task manager CPU diagram shows 12 boxes.

 

Does that have something to do with the ML engine for optimization?

 

Otherwise if I do have a Ryzen 5 with 12 cores shouldn't it be a Ryzen 7 Processor?
