    [SOLVED] Are the Number of Cores/Threads and Core Clock the two only things that matter when talking about CPU?

    Are the Number of Cores/Threads and Core Clock the two only things that matter when talking about how strong a CPU? If so, does it mean that i5 10400f is faster than i5 11400f? They have the same number of cores/threads but 10400f's clock speed is faster. That's impossible!

    [SOLVED] Can 1 vCPU use 2 cores?

    Many vCPUs are used as multiple vCPU (e.g. 2 vCPU) to 1 core (almost as a sort of hyperthreading). But what would happen if it were the other way around so you had multiple cores (e.g. 2 cores) to 1 vCPU? Don't question as to why, I would just like to know if it would work. Thanks, Joshua123033
