    Its actually quad core Hyperthreading is why its shows up 8 cpu graphs in task manager. Basically it allows the each cpu core to call on spare capacity in the form of another core when its required. Ofcourse most applications are still only single threaded so it wont make much difference in everyday computing other than looking cool in TM.
