View Full Version : g75vw-bbk5 has a Quad core processor right?

Trying to unpark all cores using park/unpark program but it only shows 2 cores. The BBK5 uses the i7-3610qm which is a quad core from my understanding. Any reason why the program only shows 2?

Uh... yeah that's a quad core... pics? And can you grab a screenshot of hwinfo64?

G75VW is Intel Core Quad Core.

i believe that's not the number of cores that the program is showing; i think it's the number of power settings that you have.

sorry for the wait it shows 3 cores

Check the BIOS to make sure that all cores are enabled. It is called something like multiprocessing. Yes, the 3610QM is a quad-core processor, it should show 8 CPUs in task manager. Keep in mind that the CPU has power-saving technology that will turn off cores when possible, in order to allow the other cores to run faster (TurboBoost).

Those 3 showing up, are just the CPUs that park and unpark...you have them unparked. It's only those 3 that go through that process of unparking and parking. If you want to check your number of cores, open the task manager, and go to resource monitor, there you should be able to see all your cores, and their usage percentage...
