Recently I bought a AMD FX-8320 Vishera cpu and I was wondering should it be showing up as a 4 core processor in windows when it is an 8 core? I've just upgraded from a Phenom II 4x cpu. Here is a pic of what I am seeing right now.



my motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 and it's bios is up today to the F9 version. Is there a setting in bios I need to change or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh I just fixed it, I had msconfig to boot with 4 cores back when I had the phenom, so all I had to do now is disable that feature and now it loaded all 8 cores when I restarted windows.

Yes, it should, Vishera and Bulldozer FX processors show up as 4 Physical cores and 8 threads with the integer cores included.

You paid for a 3330S disguised as an octo core.

ololo

Actually it shows up as 8 cores now, and yeah I know it is four cores threaded into eight. and 3330S is a Intel i5 cpu model :0
