    Is there any application or widget that will show the full CPU usage of a Mac Pro? With even a quad-core Mac Pro and 8 virtual cores, Activity Monitor will combine them all into one single thing to display CPU usage. Is there something that will show all virtual cores separately? Even up to 24?

    I use the dashboard widget iStat Pro. You can chose a bar representation that shows all the cores.

    I know that when having 8 virtual cores on Activity monitor, it will combine them all into one, will that widget do the same?

    I use MenuMeters.

    It's a free program that displays CPU utilization (separated out by processor core), memory usage and network activity on your menu bar. Very useful.

    If you use the bar setting for the CPU it does.

    My Activity Window CPU usage windows represent my two cores.
