I must admit, I'm not very good about computer architectures.

I have a one processor, 2-core iMac. I have this computer solely dedicated to SGS so I use 100% CPU and 100% usage for each CPU.

In my preferences, I selected "no-limit" the number of tasks I can run simultaneously and "no-limit" on max # of threads for each task. What resulted is 1 task running with 4 threads.

Frankly, I'm not sure why 4 threads are running instead of 2 threads.

Now that I look at it, it seems odd to me.

Any suggestions?

I ran SGS on two different iMacs both with multitasking on and off. SGS multitasking resulted in approximately running half the time than SGS multitasking turned off. Surprised me some, but I'm going with multitasking on for SGS.

That's what I plan to do since empirically, for my two computers, there seems to benefit in selecting multithreading for SGS. I need to run a more controlled test which I will do.

I just wanted to make sure that there was no harm (besides timeliness) to running the task.

Why is not recommended to run SGS with multi-tasking?
