it's an 8-core CPU with 4 modules.

If I remember correctly,

 

Officially, your CPU is "8 cores".
But those are not "true" 8 cores, it's closer to hyperthreading on the Intel side. (2 threads per core)

My memory is a little fuzzy on this but I thought there was a little conspiracy about how AMDs FX-8150 wasn't a true 8 core but a 4 core with something that was multi-thread like.

Yeah, windows sees cores as FPUs/pipelines and not as exectution units. Meaning it interprets the 8 core fx series as 4 core 8 thread.

 

It has 8 cores, but they are layed out in a way that they work in pairs of 2. 

 

People like to say they arent "real cores" even though they are. There are just 4 pipelines instead of the 8 you would expect

It depends on your definition of a core.

AMD called it a core, but 

 

There is actually a class action lawsuit (still going?) about this: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-fx-processors-lawsuit-continues,38486.html

Quote

The company marketed its FX processors as the world's first eight-core CPUs, but because of the shared resources between cores in Bulldozer modules, the lawsuit alleges that this claim was deceptive about real-world performance.

The class action lawsuit is more about the implied performance, but it's also about the definition of a core. It basically comes down to that two cores inside of the CPU share some resources that hold significance value to the speed of a core. People thus questioned "does that really mean a core in that CPU is really a core..?"

I guess Windows has a different definition/readout as opposed to Core Temp.

 

The idea of having 1 core be 2 threads is not uncommon by the way, Intel calls it Hyperthreading (HT) and with the current technology AMD calls it Simultaneous multi threading (SMT).

They are 8 cores but with 4 FPU's. AMD banked on developers offloading floating point operations to the GPU, and it failed. They do have 8 integer units though.

My guess is that windows sees cores as pipelines.

 

Though tbh windows isnt good at core management.
