I have a Intel Core i7 quad core CPU in my Mac Book Pro. The processor supports hyperthreading, so I have 4 physical CPU core and 8 logical ones.
Now, when I assign 4 CPU cores to a virtual machine in VMWare Fusion (version 5, if it matters), does VMWare Fusion use the physical ones before using the logical ones?
I.e. which solution will be used (PC = physical core, LC = logical core):
- PC1-LC1, PC2-LC1, PC3-LC1, PC4-LC1
- or: PC1-LC1, PC1-LC2, PC2-LC1, PC2-LC2
Does this even matter?
