How Many Physical Cores This CPU Have?
CPU Type DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E6300, 1866 MHz (7 x 267)

I am Asking Because Im Confused, When i checked in Intel Site It is Writen That Its Got 2 Cores,
Here it is:
or


Now, When I Ran "SIW" Program It Wrote:
Number of Logical Processors 2
Number of Physical Processors 1
CPU #1 Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
CPU Name Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz
CPU Code Name Conroe
here:


So Please Can Anyone Tell Whats Going On?
Is It 1 Componant Devided To 2 Logical Cores?
OR
Is It 2 Componants That Are Indipended?

Thank You Very Much.
(& soryy for my bad english)

So The Word physical Describe The........ House\place\box\space The Cores Sit In?
Then I Understand that i have 2 actual cores in that.... place\box\space, (right?)
-
(2 physical cores In 1 physical CPU)? - (right?)
[edit]
oh, You said that. (sorry 4 bouble)
Well.....
That Makes Alot Of Sense!
Thank You.

Yes. Number of physical cores is the actual number of cores that are there on a die (better word than place/box/space, right ? :D  ). Some Intel CPUs have got a feature which makes one physical core behave like two cores, which results in some performance increase, and those two apparent cores are called logical cores.

Physical core is the core itself.
Logical core is the one within the core(processing units)
Some cores can have two processing units however the result would be gathered by 1 core.
