GPU processing is only for highly specialized processing, not general purpose computing.

Specifically it is only for problems that can be highly parallelized, such as computing all options chains at once, modelling the atmosphere in a grid pattern, or rendering a landscape for your favorite shoot 'em up game.

The real question to ask (I think the answer is yes but nobody has seen it yet) is if NT 8 take advantage of multiple cores in your PC.

NT 7 does not. On my 8 core rig, I can get NT screaming at 12.5% utilization. (as high as it will go.)

-Bob

P.S. This is something that is easier done in Unix than windows, which is why a lot of Windows apps only run on one processor.

NT7 does use multiple cores in the area of backtest optimization. NT8 uses all available cores across the entire application.

This is good news. Thanks.

I use NT mostly for charting. [With a number of very fine indicators found here on futures.io (formerly BMT).]

NT8 is designed for threading across all available cores, this includes cores on multiple processors. If you had 2 of the Intel Xeon E5-2670 processors in one system, NT8 would see this as 16 available cores and could utilize all 16 these cores. NT8 does have Windows manage the threads. Meaning it will utilize the cores with the least amount of utilization, if another application is already utilizing that core it will try and locate a core with less utilization.

Question about Market Replay Data:
Is it possible to use already downloaded NT7 Market Replay data with NT8 (as data format has changed)?
