  1. That means the game you are playing doesn't support 4 cores. It may be a multi-threaded game for 2 cores. Supreme commander is one game that supports 4 cores.
  2. supreme commander is *supposed* to support up to 4 cores but I'm yet to see it properly happen eg. 1core for ai each or sumthin they were saying.

    I thought only Ultimate or Business could use 2 physical cpus?
