Packages sets and #SMT sets. Windows uses 5 fields in the KPRCB to determine correct scheduling decisions when dealing with logical processor topologies. The first field, #CoresPerPhysicalProcessor, determines wheter this logical processor is part of a multicore package. /1
It's computed from the CPUID returned by the processor and rounded to a power of 2. The 2nd field, #LogicalProcessorPerCore, determines wheter the logical processor is part of an SMT set, such as on an AMD with SMT, it is also queried through CPUID and rounded. /2
