When running RX on a computer with 2-core, 4-core, or 8-core processors, RX will take advantage of each CPU. Only one processor will run at a time however. When you apply any algorithm to your audio file inside of RX, the processing power will jump from processor to processor depending on how intensive your calculation is. However, the maximum speed of the calculation will always be limited to the maximum speed of a single processor’s power.
Multi-Core processors truly shine in dealing with vast amounts of data, but do not necessarily make your computer 2, 4 or 8-times faster.
The only area inside of RX where you can use all of your processors at the same time is inside of the Denoiser module, using “Algorithm C (Offline)”. You can specify how many processors RX will use in this calculation, under the:
Preferences > Misc. section.
Note: If you make sure that this setting is set to the maximum number possible, you are sure to take advantage of as much of your computer’s processing power as possible.
