Windows 7: Number of Cores supported for Windows 7 Home Premium?

Number of Cores supported for Windows 7 Home Premium?

Hi, I was looking into getting an HP Envy 17/Asus G73JH, and I know that both sport core i7-quad processors, and due to hyperthreading, it'll appear to the OS as 8.

My question is, will Windows 7 Home Premium be able to read all of these cores, or will I have to use my windows 7 Professional license upgrade in order for it to take advantage of all the cores?

And also, what's the maximum amount of cores that Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate can see?

Thanks in advance!

Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium each support 1 physical CPU socket and the # of cores are unlimited. Professional and Ultimate support 2 physical CPU's with unlimited # of cores.

Compare Windows 7 Editions

The max cores supported is 256, all editions. When we get to 256 cores on home computers Windows 7 will have been replaced.
