    Find out physical processor amount Win server 2003

    Morning all,

    I've got to upgrade to sql 2008 for sims.

    I'm just getting pricing in and I need to determine how many physical processors I have in the server, is there any quick software method for doing this?

    My server has Intel Xeon E5310 and in device manager it registers 8 processors, Does that mean that cos it's quadcore I'd have 2 physicals onboard?

    Thanks
    Dan

    CPUID will tell you.

    I would expect it's a single quad core CPU. It's registering 8 cores because it uses hyper threading.

    Our twin 55xxs register 16 cores on ESX console.

    EDIT: Actualy you've probably got dual CPUs, my Q8200 reports as 4 processors in device manager.
