so, we can do it manually; with software or wait for microsoft.
hmm... but there's local guy asked why there's little to none improvement on gaming by setting the affinity manually
depends on the affinity - 0-7 - and 8-16 are differnt CCXs - if you set all affinity to all real cores (and not SMT cores) on ONE CCX (assuming you only need 4 threads) and nothing changes, then smt/ccx's arn't the issue for that.
the problem is - doing this manually is a pain, as you have to make sure you balance the SMT cores, the CCX's - and the # of threads (and spawned threads) - so... really we microsoft to fix it. (or cacheman)
