This is consistent with having a single processor containing a single core which contains two execution threads through hyperthreading. Thus you have two logical processors, but they share most of their resources (instruction decoding, arithmetic, etc.). This allows some parallelism — one thread can progress while the other one is blocked (e.g. waiting for a ...


I'd stick intel i3 530 (the product name) into Google and end up on its ark.intel.com page: Sockets Supported FCLGA1156 If you're less confident about the CPU model (or there are two SKUs with the same model - ARK would tell you) you could look at the current motherboard.

Try this: gksu gedit /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor Replace ondemand with performance. Repeat for every core (increase cpu0: cpu1, cpu2). If you get save errors, use nano editor: sudo nano /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor Source: Avoiding CPU Speed Scaling – Running CPU At Full Speed
