Why doesn't VX support Hyper-Threading? Or dual processors?

Are there any plans to support dual-core cpu's?

Hello ProblemChild

VX has a very advanced architecture giving a database that performs far faster than the "off the shelf" kernels. If you are running WindowsXP, the OS should manage the use of dual processors, but this technology is not necessarily advantageous.

However, at the end of the day, it would not matter if your PC ran on a couple of paper clips and an elastic band, providing you are happy with the performance of your software. If you have come up against an issue where the software performance is really unsatisfactory, perhaps you can feed that information to VX Support. Elsewhere in the forum you will discover my notes on getting the best from your current hardware.

Quickmill supports MP & Hyperthreading. I've seen it peg both "processors" In many cases though, if you're not running a bunch of backgroup processes, performance will be better with hyperthreading turned off.
