Hi Folks,

We are thinking about buying machine with more than 64 virtual cores, will LightWave be able to use them all? Few years ago I tried and it wasn't possible.

I recently looked into the possability of updating my present system to a multi processor computer but did not know what
the thread support was for 2 of my programmes so i emailed Lightwave and Poser Pro tech support and got these replies.

"Lightwave tech support informed me that at present upper limit is 72 threads".

"Poser Pro 11 Current Support is up to 32 Threads"

Is it even a good idea to run so many cores on one machine ? isn't it better to split it up on multiple machines ? with 120 cores and 3D rendering you may end up with a nasty memory bottleneck unless you have one hell of a highway to the RAM.
