number of cores based on processor model

We have a task of identifying number of cores on all physical servers. We already have an inventory (CMDB) of sorts from winaudit scans. However, all the inventory states for one system is Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 3040 @ 1.86GHz (1 processor). From the model alone, can you tell how many "cores" there are?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, you can look up the CPU on the manufacturer's homepage (intel), and it's specifications are listed there (2 cores for that CPU):
