cpu performance

I have an Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM Processor.
It has 4 cores and 8 threads.
As far as I know NT7 is 1 threaded so it can only use 12,5% of the CPU capacity.

Is it possible to disable somehow the CPU's hyper threading therefore double the performance of NT7?

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.

If you disable the HT you'll see a 25% CPU usage, but the result will be the same.
So the answer is basically no.

RAM

Hi @sam028

can you make NT faster when the RAM % usage is low? On my side I have an RAM usage from 84% and I feel that's the reason why everything is so slow.

Re OP, I assume you're trading off a laptop? which means you likely have poor air flow and no control over your fan speed. If your having performance issues it could be heat related , you should check your CPU temp. Your never going to double your performance, but you might beable to optimize it.

Don't use stuff like that, it is just adding bloat to your system.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

No it's not, that program is tiny in size 500kb and uses less than 1000k. It's not bloatware. When your running system heavy resources chances are windows isn't going to be releasing all your available memory.

Open a "Performance Monitor" and check the memory usage and the free memory, the disks access time. If you have enough free memory, and low disk access time, then there is not a lot to do...

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