Does NT8 use all the computer resources when optimizing / Strategy Analyzer?

I have an 8 Core / 16 Thread CPU, X570 Mobo and SSD. When looking at the Task Manager it appears that NT8 is only using 2 Cores / 4 Threads when running an optimization. This was confirmed when I looked at AI Suite 3. It does not appear to be Thermal Throttling as temps are nowhere close to the danger zone. Total CPU Utilization is always under 10%. Is this normal? Or has something gone wrong with my system? I also noticed the same thing when using Market Analyzer for an EOD Stock Screener. I have never noticed this before.

Seems like a waste of money for a dedicated NT8 machine upgrade.

If someone wants to try to duplicate I was optimizing the stock strategy 'Sample MA crossover' on the SP500 Select All.
