Developing Applications for More Than 64 Logical Processors in Windows Server 2008 R2

Sign in to queue


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.

    wow, the audio quality is so bad..  it just dies out and you hear nothing for 3 or 4 seconds at a time.

    It just seems odd that we're talking about great technolgoies, and we can't make a simple audio recording.  You can pick a tape recorder from Radio Shack for $20
