Atom N270 on 10.6.8 ::: Only one Processor in SystemProfiler

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i have an Aspire One L150 Netbook with Intel Atom N270 CPU

 

When I used Leopard, I booted with cpus=2 and got SystemProfiler to show up 2 Processors but under SnowLeopard (10.6.8) there seems to be no difference when booting with cpus=2.

 

SystemProfiler always shows Number of Processors: 1

 

How can I figure out if SL is using both cores?

How can I tell SL to use both cores?

 

Hope this is an easy question but my searched didn't come up with useful results.

If you need additional Information, please ask.

 

Yours Cenar

 

Edit:

By the way: ActivityMonitor shows two Graphs for CPU usage. Is this a reliable indicator that both are used?

N270 chip is a single core.

Here's the datasheet from Intel:
