    Hello - Not sure how many cores I have based on the following:

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
    Processor 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

    I was wondering if this is 4-core related, less or more and also if running 1-4 cores whether separately or all together with the MB Pro's these days will be prone to burning out.

    Thanks!

    Your MacBook has two cores, I'm not aware of it being possible to just burn out one of them.

    That is a screen from the Mactracker app. You can get that through the App Store, or download directly from the developer web site.

    Never heard of any burn out.
    With the discrete GPU yes but you don't have one.

    How do you come up with this question?

    It's not possible to burn out cores on modern CPUs. You have 2 Core with Hyper Threading so it really acts like 3 Cores Total in terms of performance.

    With rendering graphics the thought came up while doing some research.

    ok. but don't worry about this.

    its way more likely that your keyboard will fail before. $700 repair:)
