P4 with Hyper-Threading technology

Specifically, what CPU model do you have? CPU-Z can help to identify this. http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

There are Pentium 4 CPU's that appear to Windows as having two cores, but are actually single core, Hyper-Threading models.

Short answer is "Intel standard."

In reply to: lol

Most want a course in Intel architecture which I find the Wikipedia articles to be fairly good at.
