another cpu is intel 1.5 GHz and dual core.
all other parts are similar
are they equivalent for HFSS and CST or not?
You must have a multiprocessor-enabled license to use more than a single core (i.e. one solver thread only no matter how many cores are available). Once you have the proper license, any number of cores (within a single physical machine, i.e. all processors connected to a single motherboard and running a single operating system) can be used by setting the correct number of solver threads to execute.nasimakis said:i am confused. some say you should have a special license to exploit all cores in a pc, with HFSS programm, some say you should go to tools/options/hfss_options and just put the number of cores there. Does anyone know what is really the correct of the two?
I have an intel pentium core 2 quad pc and i tried with the second way to take advantadge of all 4 cores. The result on the real time of HFSS wasn't much different and in the task manager the cpu usage percentage didn't change. Do all these mean that i haven't activate all cores for HFSS simulations?
