You should beable to disable HT or play around with your boost settings using 3rd party software

If you're having performance/ heating issues then it could also be caused by your GPU.

I suspected something similar. Let me tell my experience with my other, older computer /also a laptop/.
I was running some indicators /written, modificated by myself/ seeing 50% CPU usage /dual-core/ I was thinking it is because of the calculations but when I minimize the charts it goes back to around 6-8%. So probably displaying the charts use more capacity than calculations.

After right click I have the option to run NT7 with graphics processor. Can I have better results with this?

I haven't used NT in years, but use other software that's very CPU intensive. If your trading live then only loading a minimum amount of data should help.

If you only have an onbaord GPU or something that's old and are running multiple monitors, then your GPU might be bottle-necking your CPU and causing some performance issues. Laptops are notorious for overheating aswell. CPU vs GPU allocation is determined by how the software was designed, so if NT has a setting that optimizes your GPU, then it might help take some strain off your CPU- or it might make things worse. Try it out.

Can you elaborate this? I was thinking that without threading NT7 could use a whole core not just the half of it.

The additonal you'll see when the hyper-threading is enabled is not a real core. It's a trick to allow a better parallelism (very simplistic and rough explanantion) but this won't the overall computing power.
It's easy to test in you run any heavy computing program using all the visible cores: you'll see that only the real core will be have a 100% usage, their associated hyperthread core will be sleeping.

Why do you need better performance? Is it lagging?

It is. Altough it does only during high impact news announcements it is still annoying.
Many indicator is using OnBarUpdate() which works well almost all the time but when the nubmer of incoming ticks suddenly increase it can overhelm my CPU.

I was wondering whether is it possible to build in a similar maximum refreshing interval like it is frequently used in OnMarketDepth().

That may solve my issue.
