Does anyone know if there is a way for the user to tweak something in Win 7 Ulimate 64 it so that Pinnacle Studio 15 will use all 12 threads? Or is this restriction something imposed by the code in Studio. I was expecting a a 25% rendering speed improvement by moving from a 4 core intel to a 6 core. Studio 15 used all eight threads in a i7-2600 CPU machines but in the new Xeon 1650v2 (6 core, 12 threads) only uses 6 threads - LESS THAN THE 4 CORE MACHINE, and seems to have no speed advantage at all. Was my hypotheses all wrong? I thought it would be dependant on the app software but I never thought it would be almost no improvement.
