Depends on what you mean with "CPU". You seem to use the terminology
"CPU == chip"?

Anyway, I didn't suggest using "CPU" but "processor".  Existing
platform APIs traditionally use the term "processor" and not "core"
for this, like sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN) on Linux and
SYSTEM_INFO.dwNumberOfProcessors on Windows.
