Hey, I know this is an old topic but I cant find the right answer for me.

My CPU is Intel I5 4690K , AFAIK it the I5 series doesn't have HT. So what is the correct jobscheduler value for me? I tried 14 but I know 15 is also for a 4 core CPU...


Thanks in advance!

Use the calculator of Windows in the "Programmer" mode and enter 14 (or 15) in the decimal layout, then switch to the Bin layout. You will see that 14 converts to 1110 and 15 converts to 1111. This means, 14 tells the P3D to run only on core 3, core 2 and core 1 and leaves core 0 out. Similarly, 15 means: run on all four cores. Means, 15 is absolutely useless, as it is the same as no affinity mask at all, resulting in all four cores used by P3D. The rest you have to test on your own, depending on your addons, your settings and your system, it might be that using AffinityMask=14 provides you better performance, it might also be that you do not see any difference.

If your CPU doesn't use HT you shouldn't bother with jobscheduler at all.
