Set Affinity....help me understand
A few days ago someone started a thread regarding orthos and stressing all 4q of a q6600.
MgCook and Pdawg mentioned something about the affinity settings.
here's my question
I noticed that when I convert an mpeg video to divx, only one core is used. If I were to manually go and check mark both cores under 'set affinity'...Would that make my project work and finish faster? In other words, by putting a check mark under both cores, it will increase performance right?
Help me understand....
