I'm wondering if anybody out there is familiar with a program that I could use to manage a dual core processor and assign each core certain programs so I can have the ultimate multitasking computer...I don't have the computer done yet but its a 3800 X2 and I've got water cooling and plan on OCing as much as I can....As far as OS's go, I'm going to run 4 OS's......WinXP, x64, Suse & Fedora Core 4...... :D

O, and I also know that you can assign programs to each processor in the task manager in windows but each time you restart your computer your going to lose this information as far as I know..... :lol:

Performance wise is this app a lot better for the threading or what? The benchmarks show little difference but do you notice any???? I thought I was going to be getting my mobo in yesterday but the delivery got rescheduled today so I should be able to get her up and running.... :x

THG Task Assignment Manager isn't really about performance. It's more about convenience and, as the authors say in the article, not having to reinvent the wheel each time you want an app assigned to a particular cpu. That said, I haven't noticed any performance issues. However, using it lowers the Windows Frustration Factor quite a bit for me so even if there was a slight performance decline, it's a price I would gladly pay.

I'm always up for losing some microsoft frustration...only if we could pull completely away from this STUPID OS.....

Noone's stopping you...

Does the THG program allow you to assign just processors or cores as well?

(Would it make a difference to my poor old dual P3?)
