Below are screen shots showing the original Phenom II X4 960T processor running on teh ASRock 890GX Extreme3. In the task manager it shows 4 cores.
With UCC enabled, Lavalys shows that ti is a Thuban core and in task manager, we see 6 cores.
In CPU-Z, it is recognised as a Phenom II X6 1605T which is not quite right. The task manager shows the difference when the 2 hidden cores are enabled by UCC.
As we can see from CPU-Z the L1, L2 and L3 figures are different when the 2 hidden cores are enabled. Instead of 4 x 64KB for L1, it is now 6 x 64KB of L1. Likewise for L2. Instead of 4 x 512KB (2MB) it now becomes 6 x 512KB (3MB). L3 are 6MB for both situations.
