Windows Task Manager Showing 256 Cores!

Windows Task Manager Showing 256 Cores

Here is the Windows Task Manager of a machine (at Intel) with 256 cores running on Windows Server 2008 R2. I wonder what kind of application is running to load the CPU to 91% ??? With the cores number increase, this kind of image will become common…

    I guess it’s the Windows Server 2008 R2 itself who creates such load )))
    Jus’ joking..

    whatever they’re running on that machine, it just shows that they have a good reason for having 256 cores, becasue they need it.

    It’s probably been zombified 😉
