You can also verify hyperthreading in Task Manager Performance tab. See the attached image.

  1. Right click on Windows icon in left down corner and enter Windows PowerShell (Admin)

Use the following command to enter the interactive wmic interface:

...> wmic

 

2. The following command will gather the number of cores and the number of logical processors:

wmic:root\cli> CPU Get NumberOfCores,NumberOfLogicalProcessors /Format:List

 

 

Result: If the number of logical processors is greater than physical processors (cores), then hyperthreading is enabled.

 

Example1:

C:\Users\Spock>wmic

wmic:root\cli>CPU Get NumberOfCores,NumberOfLogicalProcessors /Format:List

 

NumberOfCores=4

NumberOfLogicalProcessors=8

 

 

wmic:root\cli>exit
