super pi question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've now been trying all versions of super pi that i found on the web, but no one of them will ever use more then 50% of my computer..
Just wondering if this is normal??
I have a x2 4200+

Since you have a dual core cpu and superpi can only use one at a time, that is normal.

It actually does use it all, it's just that dual core processors are only shown as half load.

it only uses one core/half of both cores.

It's not optimized to be dual core.
