xeon X3460 has 4 cores; device manager might show 8 if hyper threading is enabled

The CPU has 4 cores, but it also supports hyperthreading, so that adds an additional "Virtual CPU" per Core. So to the OS it will look as if it has a total of 8 cores. Many servers have more than one Physical sockets with CPU's, so you'd have to multiply that with the number of sockets that are populated.

Yowch, sorry OP, I only have alerts setup for Linux, so not sure why I even got sent the question. :)
I should read a little slower.  Didn't even see "Windows" in your sentence.
