The main reason is the software just isn't written to take advantage of both CPUs.

Yup, like many/most applications, the [email protected] program is single threaded, so it can only run on one CPU at a time.

do you know if they are working on coding another version that can use multiple cores?

Not currently, I'd just keep an eye on their website for new updates to the program. I'd just run multiple instances of it if I had a dual core CPU.

yea thats still good, but if you could use two procs towards the same WU then you could zip through them in a flash

You can, you need to use the console version though. Its for two cpus, dualcores, and hyperthreaded cpus.

Well you could just run the multiple instances and get 2 done in the same time as one.

you mean you can use two cores (two physical, or one physcial and one logical) for the same WU like im talkin about?

and chim3ra yea i know you could do that, or you could use the two cores for one and get that one done twice as fast. i guess it doesnt really matter though, cause most dual core machines dont usually take a long time to finish WUs
