I need a serious PC / Windows Guru.
Here is the situation. I am running a circuit simulation on LTSpice. The software supports up to 8 threads. My machine is taking nearly twice as long to run the same simulation as my co-workers. Heres the issue. My machine is a Core i7 2670, 8gb of ram, and SSD. His is a Petium dual core T4500 with 3 gig of ram. when the simulation runs on his machine it utilizes %100 of the CPU. Mine it is only using %28. It seems that something in windows is blocking the software from using all the cores. I cant seem to figure out why. I have turned all the power setting to performance.
Anyone have any ideas?
