Trying Ubuntu. It says there is have "x 2" processor (View image). What does this mean? I could not find anything online. Please help, thanks

enter image description here


The Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7300 has 2 Cores hence the x 2. See the Intel data sheet for the processor and the Wikipedia page for Intel Core 2 for more information about your processor. Basically, 2 Cores is equivalent to having 2 discrete CPUs on the silicon die.
