I hope this is the right forum for this question:

I have just finished putting together a new workstation built around an Asus K8N-DL and a single Opteron 248. Everything is working great, but Windows XP Pro shows only 1 processor in the Task Manager / Performance section.

I was given the impression that Windows should see two processors because of the AMD HyperTransport. Any ideas?

AMD Hyper Transport is a link technology. Intel's Hyper Threading technology is a "method" of fooling the OS into thinking there are 2 computing cores available to it. So, simply, you have 1 computing core and task manager will show exactly that.

Hyper Transport does NOT equal Hyper Threading.

Hope that helps.
