is it totally correct the only way to use the power of the threads on the virtual cores is to enable hyper threading - if this is not enables the virtual cores do not work - Is this assertion correct? -(it seems like it but its good to check rather than assume)! - Thanks
It is not called virtual cores it is virtual threads. Real 8 cores are better than 6 out of 12 virtual threads.
