wilbyhillbilly Tech: Processor explanation Please.... (33) Tech: Processor explanation Please.... 03 Dec 14

My son has asked me a question that I cannot find the answer to anywhere, so looking for the mudcat genius that I know is lurking nearby.

He just wants to know what size his PC processor is, which I thought would be simple enough to find, so I looked in his PC and came up with this:

Intel(R)Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz, 2793Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

So, can someone please explain, is this just a 2.80 processor or does the 2 core bit mean that it is doubled up to handle twice that, or am I completely barking up the wrong tree.

Just want to know what to tell him.

Any advice is gratefully received.
