Knowing the number of cores that the processor of your computer has is important in determining if your current setup can run a specific game or software. A processor core works by processing information to perform specific actions. The more cores your computer has the lesser amount of time it needs to process information. More cores also mean that your computer can process multiple complex information with ease.
If you have a modern computer then it might have a dual core, quad core, or even octa core processor. To determine the exact number of cores that your computer has under the windows 10 environment you should follow the steps listed below.
