Second processor not detected
Built my new rig and installed Vista Ultimate 64bit with both processors installed. Ram slots for both chips are populated. BIOS recognizes 2 physical chips, multi-threading is enabled. Active processor Cores is All.
System properties mentions 2 processors.
Device Manager shows 8 processors. Should be 16 with HT.
Task Manager shows 8 graphs, not 16.
What am I missing?
Reading through your manual, just double checking that these are options youre talking about:
Simultaneous Multi-Threading (Available when supported by the CPU)
Set to Enabled to use the Simultaneous Multi-Threading Technology, which will
result in increased CPU performance. The options are Disabled and Enabled.
Active Processor Cores
Set to Enabled to use a processor's Second Core and beyond. (Please refer to
Intel's web site for more information.) The options are All, 1 and 2.
To enabled and all respectively?
on a side note: Woohoo! Another join the multi-socket arena. Now try and break some records with us :biggrin:
Hang on a tick there 3.0. Im not even sure that Vista64 can read beyond 8 cores, in fact, im pretty sure it cant. Try a test install of Server 2008 (or 08R2) 64 bit, then your extra cores shall appear methinks.
easy, I may be xdrunk but the 5504'w do not hatve hyperthreadong, onlyt thrws e 552-0sa;'s and abvocve havbe hy[erthreacdinfg, so 8threadisn is correct with 5504's duial cpus.
Vista 64bit csnan detec t above 8thresadsa just fine, I knwo fir a fact from my tests on CHASOS 1.O.!!!!
If I'm reading these specs correctly the 5504 does Not support hyper-threading; Intel® Xeon® Processor E5504 (4M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 4.80 GT/s Intel® QPI) with SPEC Code(s) SLBF9
Look under the 'Advanced Technologies' header, I think you are unfortunately stuck with 8 cores.
If you click here it lists those Xeons that do support it; Products (Formerly Nehalem-EP)...
Damn Chilly.... I need what you've got!
5520 qnde NAF AND ABOVE HAVE morw than 8threwzds of 16 nthrwads!
haha omg, you can't type, but know exactly what you're talking about.. awsome!
He was actually so clear in another thread I think he cut and pasted the information...
