How can I identify how many chips are being used in a multi-chip module processor?

Hi there...

How can I identify how many chips are used for a MCM processor? I need a technical documentation if possible. When I check the datasheet what should I look for to figure this out?

This information is needed because it is related to Oracle Licensing.

thank you.

mkaatr,

For Windows right click "Computer" > "Manage" > "Device Manager" > "Proccessors"

Dear Sir...

thanks for the answer, however this only tells the number of execution threads (or cores) of the processor, which is different form the number of MCM. Some processors could have multiple cores but they are built as monolithic.

How can you identify this?

mkaatar,

Here is a website where you can explore more and find access to technical whitepapers on Intel® Multi-Core Technology for current and future architectures:

The site has links for mobile, desktop and server processors.
