I’m considering buying an Intel Core i7-4790, which has 4 cores and 8 threads.
With a 4 core, 8 thread CPU you should see 8 CPU available in the green slider area; see picture below. I set the slider to one per virtual machine. Afterwards I try to run 8 virtual machines at the same time.
Does this mean each virtual machine will use one thread or will each virtual machine use a full core?
Please have a look at this picture for reference:
