When running cinebench it only uses 4 cores and 8 threads, whereas when I first had my pc it said 8 cores and 8 threads, ive also noticed that I am getting a lower cinebench score since this has happened. if this has happenedd to anybody before and knows how to fix this any help would be appreciated.
thanks in adavance.

The 8 core amd cpus were really designed for server applications. It can't hurt to use it, but don't expect your applications to use all 8 cores at once.

fx8320 is really 4 core 4 slight cores its similar to intel i7 3770k 4 core + 4 HT means 8 threads. Cinebench has now updated probably as amd fx 8 cores are really 4 cores hyperthreaded.

Yea it is showing what it really is a quad core processor with 8 threads. Welcome to AMD's "8 core" modular scam.

I understand this but without any updates to cinebench it used to say 8 core/8 threads and I used to get a considerably better score but since the core count has gone down to 4 cores the score has gone down about 0.3 points. I was wondering if I had disabled something?

It really isn't an scam/lie.... but I can see how people think so, with the way they are built. There are 8 physical cores, so they're not really lying.
