More about explain dual core threads
  1. Not possible, do you have a link?
  2. what the processor model?
  3. That is not possible with Intel they have quad cores which can run 8 threads but not dual cores with 8 threads.
    the ability to have quad cores with 8 threads are due to ''hyper threading'' which allows cores to switch and virtually run 2 threads per core...
