Computer only recognising single core!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Ok, i've posted in the 'post your 3dMark06 scores' section but now opened a new thread becuase i don't think 3dMark is recognising my processor as a dual core

3dMark 06 Result
My CPU score is 843

I looked up on the futuremark database and another person with a very similar rig to mine gets a CPU score of 1634 - nearly double mine... coincidence? I think not, why is 3d Mark not recognising my processor as a dual core?

Just checked and under 'configuration' in my ORB it states
'MultiCore: -1 Processor Core' - and it should be 2 - obviously

-If this is the case then are other apps only recognising/using single core?

No not unless it was installed in a windows update, I didn't think it was a necessary patch...?

use either MS's dual core patch for XP or AMD's dual core optimiser

I'm running vista, is that going to make any difference? I thought vista came with the patch?

hmmmm it should be OK in Vista. try running the AMD dual core optimiser anyway. Have you overclocked the CPU at all?

not overclocked yet, just installed amd dual core optimizer and will run 3d mark soon. 'Imperator' - do you use cpu-z? If so what does it read under your processor name and specification? (seeing as you have the same processor as me)

CPU-Z states that im only using 1 core and 1 thread... and i've intalled the amd dual core optimizer.... i can't believe it's taken me this long to not notice!!!!!

Presumably games won't be using it either then!

if you installed the Dual Core processor AFTER you installed windows, you're going to have to update the HAL... (easy way, reinstall windows...)

2 cores and 2 threads on mine.

That leads me to believe maybe you need a BIOS update, if you have a BIOS which is not able to run dual cores ull need to update it - check the board manufacturers website to see if there's a newer one
