What are the registers and hardware counters present in an Intel Core 2 duo?
 
I want to know whether the registers (like eax, ebx, ecx etc.) are duplicated for each core in an intel core 2 duo. Also, are the hardware counters duplicated for each core?

He removed it, so now we'll never know......;)

Seriously, I would assume this would be at the Intel website somewhere---or perhaps at one of the hardware sites like Slashdot.

Yes.

Do you mean things like the program counter? (Answer = yes, for that case)

In general, the things that mean the core would not be able to function as a separate core have to be duplicated and are.

Thanks, Salasi!
