i3 is a dual core processor. Meaning it only has 2 physical cores with HT. Hyper-Threading gives each physical core a virtual core. So in Windows it will have 4 threads while only still being 2 physical cores.

It's the total number of threads. Total number of cores is 2 each with their own secondary thread from HT.
