Pcsx2 don,t use the second core
#1
I know that my inglish knowledges are poor, but i hope that you will help me. My problem is that pcsx2 dont use the second core of my laptop. The windows taskbar shows me that only 50% of my processor is used, and that means that only one core is used. How can i solve this problem.
The configuration of my laptop is: lenovo b5400; intel core i3 2,4ghs + 2,4ghs; 4 gb ram, 1,5 gb video card
The version of pcsx2 is pcsx2 1.2.1 r5441 ( i dont remember exactly the last 3 numbers).

are you sure you have an I3 processor ? since according to here , the following model consists of a i5-4200 M ( it's still a dual core)

on the other hand, there is no reason for PCSX2 to use more resources if the current resource usage is sufficient. why do you want PCSX2 to use more of the processor resources ? If I had to guess, it'd be due to insufficient FPS. just wanted to be sure of it before making assumptions.

if you look up my gateway it says it has an i5 as well, but mine has an i3. (some even say i7)

here's a search result for mine:
Quote:Gateway DX4870-UR11P
Gateway DX4870-UB17
Gateway DX4870-UR3D
Gateway DX4870-UB2C
etc.

I would trust the user knows what CPU they have

oh, and here's the US leveno page for the specs:

Quote:Processor
Intel® Core™ i5-4200M processor
Intel® Core™ i3-4100M processor
Intel® Core™ i3-4000M processor
Intel® Pentium™ 3550M processor
do you notice the 2 i3 models there?

50% usage in taskbar doesn't mean it uses 1 core, it means it uses 50% of both cores.

go to performance  and then CPU, you'll see the graph there of CPU usage

Right-click the graph and "change graph to": Logical processors. This will show each individual processor and thread (IE: I have 2 cores and 4 logical processors)

you can see my example here:

enable MTVU and it might use more of your CPU and give a speedboost if EE is your bottleneck
