Getting The Most Out Of Software By Properly Assigning Threads
A dual-processor system with two 3 GHz Xeon processors does not automatically have the same kind of power as a 6 GHz computer. The application and the operating system have to support symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) or HyperThreading (HT) for performance to improve. Also, the native management features of the operating system aren't always as effective as you might imagine.
However, THG offers a software utility that allows you to switch over to manual operation. As our benchmarks show, you can push your dual-processor system to even higher levels of performance.

If your applications have already been optimized for multiprocessing, the utility will not be particularly helpful. You can only draw some extra juice out of a multiprocessor system if you are running several applications without SMP support simultaneously. For example, while a CPU is compressing a movie in MPEG2 format with MainConcept software, the other CPU can be used for office applications or your Internet browser.

Nice idea! Only one major malfunction - No minimize button! Most of us do not want to be annoyed by having this app open all the time.... Better yet would be a nice little icon sitting in the taskbar available instantly and automatically each time Windoz is started....Reply
I have heard many good things about this but for me it wont work on ether of my computers.The first cpu is a dual core with xp os.The second is a Qcore with vista 64.The games im trying to assighn still only use the one core :(.But very nifty tool for most users.Reply
If you want to minimize the application, just need to create a batch file (.bat) and write this command:Reply
start /m C:\taskassign\TaskAssign.exe
Please fix the link to the utility!Reply
Century22: Please find this software.Reply
The Download is not working.
I know this is like... way dead, but I was reading here and then found that the download was broken, a quick Google search revealed the answer to me and I figured I would post it here for convenience.Reply
Here is a download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?b3io2coj3h8hc1nReply
start /min C:\taskassign\TaskAssign.exeReply
