    It's a quad core with 2 physical and 2 logical or 4 physical procs (1 to 3 combination doesn't look real to me).
    @Hopachi: Did you, by chance, upgrade your CPU after installing Windows?
    Good idea. Thanks for bringing it up again.

    No I didn't. In Device Manager or by Intel installers I presume?

    But there were tons of updates (software and hardware) in the meantime...
    That post is nearly a year old and the machine was running on RP and 8.0 then. In the meantime those older machines use Win7 and where I use, test and see 8.1 running there are no CPU issues anymore.

    If new issues will be seen somewhere, I will report them here on the forums.
