Is the 535 motor a "twin" turbo

Just curious, I'm not sure if my 2012 535 is a twin or single turbo motor. I know the engine cover says something like twin power turbo, but I thought that it was single turbo. I would appreciate some clarification. THanks.

It is a single turbo engine.

BMW calls it Twin Power Technology.

It's not like BMW makes marketing descriptions clear ........ try to decipher "Brake Energy Regeneration" ......

Single turbo, but it is twin scroll. N54 was the older twin-turbo engine. F10 is N55
