CPUs, Cores per CPU and vCPUs

Assume that we have a piece of hardware with 4 CPUs that have 4 Cores each.

Say hyperthreading is enabled; which means that each core can handle 2 threads simultaneously; that equates to a total of 8 possible cores for each CPU.

In this scenario, VMWare sees 4 physical CPUs with 8 cores each = 32 vCPUs.
