  1. I know we had a thread on this in April of last year but what I really want is a poll so I can quickly see the numbers. What I'm trying to see is how many people are running 3 core machines and how many people have 6 core procs. Keep in mind I want to know actually cores, not the number of simultaneous threads you can run. Also, if you're using a multiprocessor machine please add up your cores. Also, if you have a triple core machine but it's not your primary I would appreciate it if you would post so in the thread.

    Work related question or just curiosity? :)

    I run 2 cores now in almost everything I physically use. I have a single core system that runs and does stuff for me nearly 24/7, but I almost never sit in front of it.

    My (backup, but currently) main rig runs a quad core Intel Q6600 at stock speeds.

    My primary computer uses a AMD Phenom 1055T, but is currently out of commission due to a CPU problem.

    Primary rig runs a Phenom 1100T with 6 cores, backup is a quad.

    I'm running a Phenom II X3 720. Have so far resisted the temptation to unlock the fourth core using ACC. :)

    My primary PC uses four cores, an Intel Core i7 2600K. I have eight other older PCs that variously use a single, duo or quad core (3 singles, 2 duos and 3 quads). No threes or sixes yet.

    Primary runs a duel (E3200). The only reason i have it is because it was super cheap...and i don't game that much so it rarely lags.

    This is a personal education question. I have this idea...hunch and I'm hoping to use the TS community to confirm (enough to satisfy me anyway) or debunk that hunch.

    12 cores. Cool. But by 5 years I am guessing 12 cores will be the average CPU amount of cores.

    I have a Phenon II 555 DualCore but I'm running it as "unleashed mode" so I run it as a QuadCore :D

    Had the Phenom 1100T when I first voted but am now on the FX8120 so now it's eight. Has there been enough of a response to answer your question LNCPapa?

    Honestly... not really. There have only been a total of 25 responses to the poll - not exactly a big enough pool.

    I'm a bit surprised at the lack of response to polls; I think they're fun and it seems like a good way to generate some interesting dialogue.

    I suppose you can't excuse the fact that threads get buried here pretty quickly. Although 25 is still quite surprising.

    3 cores for me. I'll need a significantly more powerful system before next year though. My secondary system (which is currently down with HDD problems) is dual core.

    I could edit the poll to give you more responses :)

    I dropped in and saw this and thoughed I would replied since I have three computers with 4 cores and am considering building one with 6.
