I'm using Intel Xeon E5-2620 processor. There is something I'm confused about. I'm using Linux and in /proc/cpuinfo it says:
model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz
According to the Intel site, it states that it has 6 cores and 12 threads. What I cannot realize is:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor processor : 0 processor : 1 ... processor : 22 processor : 23
It seems like it has 24 cores or 24 threads, which surprised me. I thought it should be 6 or 12. Why there are 24 processors in
/proc/cpuinfo? How should I interpret this data?
