RE: new power7+ models, # of threads



fixed

Isn't this entirely dependent on whether or not the software you are using is even taking advantage of multi-threading? Not all software does, and good luck finding out if it is. It's easy to see if a process / software is using multiple cores in other environments, I have no clue how you would on the i.

I think the real question you should be asking, is: "Does software x,y,z utilize multiple cores/threads".

wow...
is my supposition correct in that my power 5+ is running 2 threads, since I have 2 "processors" active?

Same chart. 4 threads per core times 2 cores = 8 threads.
