Windows 7 Pro 32-bit processor core use

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I know all versions of Windows 7 support multicore CPUs, (2-8 cores) but will the 32-bit version of Windows 7 Professional use all cores of a 6-8 core processor, or will it have a problem and only be able to use 2-4 of the cores like in Windows XP Pro 32-bit?

Taken from Microsoft's site:

Windows 7 was designed to work with today's multi-core processors. All 32-bit versions of Windows 7 can support up to 32 processor cores, while 64‑bit versions can support up to 256 processor cores.

You'll be fine.
