CPU performance : E8400 faster than I7 !!!!!!!

Hi,I run my application on several machines and I see a strange problem. When I run my application on a E8400 (2 cores) it is faster than on a i7 (8 cores).When I look at the task manager, with the E8400 the application run between 98% and 100% CPU usage.With the i7, between 60% and 90%, it is not very constant !If you want I can send my application to the Intel Team.Regards

Hi,
I guess the task is too small to utilize more than 2 cores, so taking all the threads off the ground for i7 just introduces an overhead, without any real boost.

Sure, we would like to test the app on our side anyway
