Hyper-threading. It means that for each physical core, the OS addresses two logic cores and it shares the workload between them when it can. It's also one of the reasons Intel is dominating the CPU market right now. At least that's my understanding of it, I could be horribly wrong.

If you ask me it's not your is 4 cores and this one is 2 cores also it says nothing about having hyberthreading.
Also yours has a better on board gpu.

More cores mean nearly nothing if each core are far weaker. Having 4 cores do help but in this case the Intels 2 cores are stronger than AMDs 4 cores.

I own this CPU in my HP ProBook 4730S laptop and it runs at 2.8GHz not overclocked, no turbo-boost?
BTW… overclocking this CPU is not recommended as laptops usually don't have very powerful cooling system and it can be easily burned to death as both CPU and GPU share the same cooling system.
