Intel has a very dandy system of telling you exactly how many processors are running in one of their processors, but AMD just gives me a bunch of weird numbers. Is there someplace that tells me how many processors an AMD processor has?
Try CPU-z it's a program to read the specifications of your CPU: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html After the installation start CPU-z. Click the CPU tab and below in the screen you can read how many cores (processors) your AMD processor has. This program can be used to gather specifications about Intel and AMD cpu's.
I'm not big on desktop gadgets. I think it goes back to the days when I was running Vista on a Pentium D 805 and 2GB of DDR400. Even though my system can easily run the OS, I'm a scrooge when it comes to what is using resources.
