    [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
