I have an A.M.D. 64 Dual Core 3200+ PC. running Windows XP Pro. I have been led to believe that both cores are not necessarily active. Is there any way I can determine if this is true? and if it is, is there any way I can activate the second core if mine is using only one? Your comments please. Many thanks. LionJon
As far as I can tell both cores run at the same time and manage the load between themselves. My motherboard came with a monitoring prog and both cores appear to be running at the same time. Hope that helps.
To see if you have a dual core download Speed Fan click here , install it and when it finishes loading on the readings tab you will see both cores , I assume you meant 4200x2 dual core , they don't do a 3200 one .
open task manager (ctrl/alt/del) and click on performance. You should see two windows showing cpu performance history. If any one has problems using these processors STRONGLY recommend they read this click here
