A question about an FX-8350

I do understand that the FX-8350 is an 8 core processor which includes 2 cores per modules. My question is if a program is either a single or dual threaded application would 2 or 4 of the cores be utilized during an application, given that its 2 cores in a single modules?

So let's say the AMD FX-8350 ran a single-threaded application. Note that it says "Single" threaded, so the processor will utilize only one thread. This CPU has no special hyper-threading of the sort and will only use a single core. In Dual-threaded applications, it's the same. Two cores will be used thanks to each core handling one thread. Quad-threaded applications and so on will do the same. If you are thinking about getting the processor, don't hesitate. It's an amazing processor with eight-cores for future-proofing and a stock clock speed of 4.0GHz if you don't care for overclocking.

I'm not sure about the 8350, but from my personal experience the 8320 will hit 4.7 Ghz on air with only a 0.100 voltage boost. probably far more if you push it using water cooling. So the 8350 should perform similarly.
