Hello everyone I built a threadripper 64 core128 thread machine hoping to utilize all cores for a back testing in Ninja trader. I've experienced a bottleneck as it will only allow 64 cores to work at once. I've already upgraded to Windows 10 pro workstation. Does anybody know if it's a setting I'm missing or is it a restriction within Ninja perhaps? The processor is threadripper 3990X. Thank you guys.

The same question about the 3970X: Are all 64 threads/32 cores recognized by NT8?
Thanks.

@mdm6713
I am considering to buy a 3970X or 3990X so I am quite keen on such an issue:
How did you find out that only 64 threads were applied?
I read that other software has the similar problem (just half of the threads are recognized).

When you open the task manager during a backtest you can see only half of them are being used, the other half are at 0%. Ive yet to figure out anything to fix it yet, anybody has any ideas please speak up, thanks

Let's increase the search:

1) Has anyone a Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 2990WX, or 2950X etc using NT8 and all threads are used?

2) Ryzen 9 3950X etc.: Any problems that all threads are recognized by NT8?

3) I have a Ryzen 7 2700X: All 16 threads are applied by NT8!

Thanks.
