How many cores does the Lenovo Y560 type 59-055616 running on ICore™ i7-740M have?


When I look in the task manager I see 8 logical cores. Ran the Intel ID test it shows two cores but other utilities like sisoft sandra and everest show 4 processing cores... Can explain this?





The i7-740QM has four cores and eight threads.   Threads can show up in task manager as processors with no differentiation between physical or virtual.
