I recently upgraded a machine that had 12.2 on it. I hadn't noticed before but 12.2 reported 8 cores for my QX9650 but Slackware 64 reports 4. Wasthere a glitch in 12.2 or did I lose 4 cores somewhere?

It must have been a glitch in 12.2. The QX9650 only had 4 cores and did not have Hyper-Threading.

That's what I was thinking. Curious now as to where the extra 4 were coming from. Only thing that comes to mind is that 4 cores were counted, and then the 4 threads that belonged to them (one each) and the total of 8 was displayed. Odd.
