6 core processor shows only 3 cores in task manager!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey!

Task manager showing only 3 cores of my fx 6300 6 core processor. Should be showing 6 core instead ?

And why HWmonitor doesnt show all six cores temperatur , but only package temperature?

Here is the image what im trying to say.

It could report /module instead of /core and hence 3 modules/ 3 temp. info fields.

i believe that the amd fx line doesn't have the ability to show core temps, thats why hwmoniter isn't showing anything.

6 logical right below it. My haswell has eight processors but is quadcore.

It should definitely say: Cores: 6, Logical Processors: 6

You've probably not got all the right drivers you need installed.

I guess I should have used a question mark and not a period. 6 logical? redface.gif

The taskmanager shows correct. The FX-6300 has 3 Bulldozer modules of which each count as "two cores" or "one core" depending on the actual operation running on the CPU, somewhat like Hyperthreading, but not the same thing. In the optimal situation, the efficiency equals to a "true" 6-core CPU, but at worst case the efficiency only equals to 3-core CPU. The AMD FX-6300 is not a "true" 6-core CPU, since there are not 6 physically individual cores.

I might be wrong here but you could try AIDA64 Extreme Edition, it shows the temp on all 6 cores.. (my 6300)

Dont wanna hijack the thread but is the fx 6350 the same thing

Don't worry, windows always counts amd cpus like that. For instance, my task manager says that my 8320 is 4 cores 8 threads thumb.gif
