In an effort to be nice to my wife's ears and decrease the fan noise from one of my computers, I have been trying to run less on it than it is capable of. The computer has a 9700k in it, and I have set ncpus=6 in the cc_config.xml.
I've noticed that when running PPSE with a single thread set in the PrimeGrid preferences that the Windows Task Manager shows each of the primegrid_cllr.exe processes using 1/6 of the CPU. I would expect each one to only be using 1/8 of the CPU since I have set them to use a single thread in the preferences.
Does anyone know where the extra CPU time is going?
