Using Multi core

I have a Dell inspiron 3580 with 4GB Ram ,dual core Proccessor and it very slow. It was slow from the day I bought it and this is the 2nd ispiron that is too slow and freezing when opening softwares. I have checked the configurations and it uses only 1 core ,I than tried to use both 2 cores and the performance was wow, super fast.. I than disabled the second core and I want to know that is it good or bad to use all 2 cores in my PC ?  I have tried all options to boost my system perfomance but with no Luck,it take time to load recording studio softwares and video editing.

Re: Using Multi core

Well with only 4 GB RAM heavy programs like Video editing etc. take a lot of power  Your CPU should be running as many cores as it has all the time. This is automatic. If you have installed some software that lets you just your CPU your on your own.

An SSD would be them most upgrade you could consider this will make your system much faster. Upgrading your RAM to at least 8 GB will help some but not noticeable like an SSD will.

Your I3 CPU is going to be slow with Video editing, Video editing is slow with an I7 8 Core CPU. Your best bet is to get an SSD for your OS and working drive.

Re: Using Multi core

Thank you for sharing that with us Linda. Would it be possible to run this guide?  Perhaps a CleanBoot will help your computer to lower the stress on the CPU.

Re: Using Multi core

That's great! That is indeed a great improvement. Has the computer been behaving since the redundant programs have been stopped?
