The Laptop on the Device Manager has got 2 processors . Both 3.6 GHZ. Also in Britanny(France)(You don't want to go there! Lol!) there was mobo's with Dual CPU support so do you think you could have 2 CPU's both dual core???? It would be AWESOME if you could!!!!

Also In the Device manager it says multi processor.

The fastest Pentium dual core processor runs at 3.2GHz.

What you have is a 3.6 GHZ P4 single core processor with hyperthreading.......Windows reports hyperthreaded cpus as two seperate processors in Device Manager.

Sorry I don't think its got HT but it only a 3.06

Under Computer in Device Manager, it says "ACPI Multiproceccor PC".

My 3.2 GHZ P4 single core Hyperthreaded cpu also reads as "ACPI Multiprocessor PC" in device manager and I also have 2 cpus listed at 3.2GHz.


So it is definitely a function of the hyperthreading you are seeing.......You said it showed 3.6GHz in your initial post.Did you mean 3.06?


Unless...........you have a Pentium D cpu


If your laptop has a Pentium D 830 cpu then it is a true dual core processor.If it is any other model it is a single core Hyperthreaded cpu.
