I have a Core i3-530, and of course, Windows doesn't differentiate between physical/logical cores.
Can someone please tell me how they're numbered?
Are the 2 cores like CPU0+CPU1 and CPU2+CPU3, or CPU0+CPU2 and CPU1+CPU3?

Does it matter as long as it shows up with two cores?

It does, if I'm to set CPU affinity of a process with only two threads. Don't wanna end up with both threads on one core. :)
