How di I know if I have Dual Core Processor?

HI!

I want to know If I have dual Core processor.
I went to Run and typed in "dxdiag". I looked at Processor and this is what it said:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00 GHz (2 CPUs)

SO do I have Dual Core processor or not. I also went to Start>My Computer>Properties and there it doesn't say anything about Dual Core.
I have Windows XP Professional

More about dual core processor
  1. Best answer
    Pentium 4 is single core, but some have hyper thread
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors
  2. Easy bro. Just download this software. Btw Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU is only 1 cores if i'm not mistaken. By chance if your scoket is 775 then you are capable to change to dual core processor. Your doubt will be cleared. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
  3. Thank you! So is there any way that I can do something other than buying new processor to this one becomes dual core?
  4. How do I know what my scoket is?
  5. Hi! SO I went to Google and typed my PC model and saw that my Processor has Hyper Thread so can you somehow explain me what it is. ( I know I can just googeld it, but don't you think this is more interesting?)

    the system is so old, the best thing is to replace it.
  8. Alright so this processor is not that good or what? I think that it's the only thing that is like bad right now.

    Not good but its too old school.. Gonna spent a lot if u wanna upgrade it. So better buckle up some money and do a new system. I'm sure you will be satisfy with you. Plus, seriously i'm teeling you the each buck u use to spent your old rig better to save it up for future rig. :D. Btw to know the type of socket you have download the cpu id as i gave the link above. If its socket 775 you can upgrade to dual core and if its socket 478 u cant do anything.
  12. How much does that upgrade usually cost?
  13. If you need a cheaper solution, I recommend getting a low end laptop. Laptops out now can be purchased for 250-300 bucks, and come with decent performance now. FAR superior to what you have now.

    IF you want to build a new computer, you will need to get an entirely new computer, new everything most likely. Expect to pay 450-500$ for bare bones system.
  14. Alright, well I guess I will be ok with this right now. If I will need something I can always ask you people.
  15. Hey people one more thing! Can I play AC: Revelations with this PC. I mean I played Skyrim and Borderlands 2 just fine with it without the new memory upgrade. So this is not the headline topic more of a side quest. I went to the Can I run it it said only that I need a better Processor.
