Physical Core Order

The Mac

Recommended Posts

On sensors, what is the physical core order vs virtual cores?


is 1-4 physical and 5-8 HT cores?


or is 1,3,5,7 physical, and 2,4,6,8 HT?



also, is there anyway to round the muliplyier for the LCD outputs?  its giving integers (ex 33.0x), which is kinda ridiculous for a multiplier since its a whole number.

On the Computer / Sensor page only physical cores are listed.

Please note that many processors use half-step multipliers like 20.5x, and some of them use even less round numbers like 1.75x.

You can check the order of the CPU utilization readings and their relation to phyisical cores if you go to the Motherboard / CPU page, and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Under modern operating systems (Vista, Win7, Win8, Win8.1, etc) it usually alternates between physical and virtual cores. So first logical processor is first physical core, second logical processor is first virtual core, 3rd logical processor is 2nd physical core, 4th logical processor is 2nd virtual core, etc.
