Windows 7 will support more than 64 logical processors with improved kernel scheduler mechanisms that enable efficient scaling. Learn how to use new system software affinity APIs to aid application scalability beyond 64 logical processors through the use of "Kernel Groups." Kernel Groups allow for legacy processor affinity aware applications to perform well while applications and drivers using new APIs can take advantage of all processors on the system.
