Hello,Based on observation, it would seem that a CPU-bound effectively single-thread program running on, say, the i7-2729QM processor can use only 1/2 the CPU power of one core. This is different from my older dual core system where an application could grab 100% of one of the two cores.First, is that understanding correct? Second, is there any way to finese that, and let a thread use 100% of a core's capabilities? Setting affinity (from what I can tell) only says which core to partially use.Thanks,Richard
