    The Z420 supports a single Intel Xeon E5-1600v1 and E5-1600v2 series processor. The Hyper-Threading support allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core -- Windows recognizes 24 total cores on this unit, 12 real and 12 virtual. It also supports "Turbo Boost" which automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload - so if an application is only using one of the 24 cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores.
