Is Max/MSP dual core aware?

Hello,

I got my Core2duo t7200 laptop(PC), I want to know if I need to set anything up specially to help max get most out of my cpu. I searched through the board but could not find very clear answers.

Do I need to do anything special for max to make it use both cores efficiently?

Thanks.

Most of Jitter is multithreaded. Not all objects, but most, from my
understanding. As for MSP~ audio objects, im uncertain. Other
authorities will have to answer that.

Thanks vade! I thought this question had an obvious answer, does anyone have any bits of idea?

The objects can be multithreaded in themselves but can MSP environment charge different cores for different tasks? Say I have 2 vst objects, will they work on the same core even if that core is having difficulty running them both together?

Or Say I have two patchers doing some heavy work. Will they be seperated to different cores if needed and such?

Thanks.

MSP wise, intel dualcore doesn’t add any imporntant performance gain.
But it is useful to partager the tasks as to different standalone
patches and initiate them as independent instances. Then it they
might be using different core’s
at the same time.
There is also a useful article (thanks Andrew!) about scheduling at
