Hello, @Kongrong  

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

 

I am sorry to hear what is happening with your processor. 

 

We can provide you the information of how the cores work and how many you have, for example, your processor has 4 P-cores and 8 E-cores, you can actually verify this information here

 

However, if you have any other problems identifying the E-cores or P-cores in your OS or getting messages regarding this, you need to contact the OS developer for further assistance. 

 

Best regards,

Hi Jocelyn,

I am a kernel developer,.

I have a idea for intel P & E core, so I want to make a scheduler based on Ubuntu.

But I can not get the information which is P-core or E-core. So I need your help.

 

Best regards.

Hello, @Kongrong  

 

Unfortunately, the only information we have is how they work, their functionality, for this inquiry, you have to contact your OS support for further assistance.
