WEI is showing only 2 cores instead of the 4 that my processor has. Here's what CPU-Z shows:


Number of cores  4 (max 4) Number of threads 4 (max 4) Name   AMD A8-6500 Codename  Richland Specification  AMD A8-6500 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics     Package   Socket FM2 (904) CPUID   F.3.1 Extended CPUID  15.13 Core Stepping  RL-A1 Technology  32 nm TDP Limit  65 Watts Core Speed  1696.6 MHz Multiplier x Bus Speed 17.0 x 99.8 MHz Stock frequency  3500 MHz Instructions sets MMX (+), SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, SSE4A, x86-64, AMD-V, AES, AVX, XOP, FMA3, FMA4 L1 Data cache  4 x 16 KBytes, 4-way set associative, 64-byte line size L1 Instruction cache 2 x 64 KBytes, 2-way set associative, 64-byte line size L2 cache  2 x 2048 KBytes, 16-way set associative, 64-byte line size FID/VID Control  yes Min FID   8.5x # of P-States  8 P-State   FID 0x19 - VID 0x10 - IDD 17 (20.50x - 1.450 V) P-State   FID 0x17 - VID 0x14 - IDD 19 (19.50x - 1.425 V) P-State   FID 0x15 - VID 0x26 - IDD 16 (18.50x - 1.313 V) P-State   FID 0x13 - VID 0x30 - IDD 12 (17.50x - 1.250 V) P-State   FID 0x10 - VID 0x3A - IDD 10 (16.00x - 1.188 V) P-State   FID 0xB - VID 0x44 - IDD 8 (13.50x - 1.125 V) P-State   FID 0x6 - VID 0x58 - IDD 6 (11.00x - 1.000 V) P-State   FID 0x1 - VID 0x6C - IDD 4 (8.50x - 0.875 V)


Is this just a problem with WEI? Should I just ignore? Just concerned that all my cores are being correctly utilized. TIA

Just go into the device manager/processors and see how many cores are listed there - if correct ignore wei

Thanks. WEI is just messed up, so am ignoring. Just saw that MS ditched WEI in 8.1 anyway.
