THE PROCESSOR

Processor

an electronic circuit which executes computer programs, containing a processing unit and a control

TYPES OF CPU

Single Core Processors with only one core(e.g. AMD Athlon Fx, intel Celeron).

A Dual-core processor has two cores (e.g. AMD Phenom II X2, Intel Core Duo).

A Quad-core processor contains four cores (e.g. AMD Phenom II X4, Intel's quad-core processors, see i3, i5, and i7 at Intel Core).

A Hexa-core processor contains six cores (e.g. AMD Phenom II X6, Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 980X), an octa-core processor contains eight cores (e.g. Intel Xeon E7-2820, AMD FX-8150).

An Octa-core processor contains eight cores (e.g. Intel Xeon E7-2820, AMD FX-8150)

How to Identify CPU Physically

A part from the possibility of identifying the processor by the system parameters under windows, there are utilities to let you get to know your hardware.

To identify CPU Physically:
The easiest way:
Right click on My Computer (or Computer under Vista) then click Properties.

Using a utility software:

Fist you need a CPU-Z...
