TradeStation 9.1 Multi Core Support

Just wondering if anyone else has had a chance to run TS 9.1 on a multi core/multi thread computer to compare performance improvements. Looks promising especially for backtesting purposes many strategy optimization I run on my old PC take several hours to several days so if anyone has a new i7 or AMD CPU that would care to share how much better things run(or worst) I would appreciate it

From what I can see, only Chart Analysis is Multi-core not backtesting/optimization.

That said, I'm running 9.1 on an i7 2600 3.5GHz with 16GB RAM running Win 7 64bit. I haven't run strict performance testing yet but I see no difference in optimization or backtesting since this piece of TS is still single-threaded as far as I can tell.

I have been using TS 9.1 since update 5, (now update 8). I only use TS for charts and I don't back-test. I think reply #1 is right. So far only the charts will get multi-core (multi-thread) processing.

Performance improvements: yes. Greatly. Under 8.7 I constantly ran into CPU usage saturation even at 13% (single thread) - frozen charts. Now with 4 threads, I see it could go up to 25% constantly and can spike to 40%. No more frozen charts.

However, it seems that the multi-thread mechanism in TS 9.1 is still buggy. I am experiencing lots of crashes. Other TS 9.1 users too. Not sure if the crashes are related to multi-thread computation or just 9.1. My opinion on it is that it should not be for production use. Very disruptive to productivity with these crashes.

I've not had any crashes on my 9.1. Granted....I only use TS for charting and basic price/volume analysis so I may not see some of the same issues others are.
