This guy shows 4 cpus in XP so must have gotten the multi core to work:http://lists.xe... [by funnyfingers]
Is it possible to have a multi-CPU server where the CPUs do not necessarily have the same number of core counts?
For example, a group of 4 at dual core and a group of four at quad core?
This question is independent of any OS.
David answered that this is possible. So I'd like to extend my question and ask if it's possible to mix hyperthreading and non-hyperthreading CPUS.
I think I am correct in saying that scheduling is the/a main principle of the single core CPU, where the CPU is interrupted when switching from processing one set of instructions belonging to one program to another set of instructions.
