I want to know how I can see the virtual cores of my cpu? If they are operative or not, it is an i5-7400, PN: BX80677I57400, the description indicates 4 physical cores and 4 virtual cores, in the task manager of windows 10 only shows the physical cores since this CPU does not have Hyper- Threading.
first of all, Thanks.
Thank you for joining the Processors community.
Your Task Manager is showing the correct information, you can also use MSinfo32.exe command to check for the physical and logical cores. In the following link you can find the steps to use that command and others to check this information: https://wiki.windward.net/Returning_Users/Cross-Product_Articles/Determining_the_Number_of_Cores_for...
