NIM Posted August 20, 2007 Share Posted August 20, 2007 The following 14-page PDF tutorial describes how Vista goes about managing some of the system resources.Managing System Resourceshttp://i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/i/tr/downloads/...7_chapter_5.pdfVista is not only a multi-tasking OS but it is also a multi-processing OS (assuming that you have more than a single core). Vista functions with a maximum of 2 CPUs. There is no maximum number of cores. However there has been some discussion that the efficiency of Vista starts to drop off when there are more than 4 cores. Shocked It is hoped that Vista SP1 will fix this inefficiency problem because having 8 cores is quite possible today. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
