SUMMARY: Multi-Threading in Pro/E WF2 64-bit?

Thanks to all that replied. It seems that the 64-bit version of Pro/E doesn't use multiple processors any better than the 32-bit version.


Original posting:

Does anyone know if Pro/E is capable of multi-threading in the 64-bit Windows version of Wildfire 2.0?

Responses:

For the most part, the answer is no (certain obscure functions can -
such as multi objective design studies in behavioral modeling with
distributed computing). Still the same as the 32-Bit version and previous
releases of Pro/E ...

Google the term "CPUS_TO_USE".

We don't deploy workstations with multiple CPUs because there is no net
benefit to the performance Pro/E. That includes "dual core" technology
and hyper-threading (they don't improve benchmark run times) ...

If you're running multiple intensive applications (along with Pro/E) or
applications that can multi-thread then that's another story.
