I am using a Mac mini (2018) with a 3.0GHz 6-core Intel Core i5 processor. My understanding is that this chip has 6 physical cores.
The Activity Monitor shows performance graphs for 6 cores. On other Macs with Hyper-Threading enabled by default, Activity Monitor shows the number of effective/virtual cores, i.e., twice the number of physical cores.
So does the display of 6 cores on this Mac mini mean:
Hyper-Threading is not offered by this chip?
Hyper-Threading is disabled by default by Apple now (likely because of the Intel CPU flaws)?
This chip really has only 3 cores, and 6 virtual?
