    And yet they are stuck at 1 core.

    For all of you wetting their pants - in 99% of real-world cases creating a single thread takes more time than solving the problem sequentially.

    Or M$ will fix the search function in Outlook to use 4 cores. :p
    WIN-WIN for both of you. *lol*

    BTT:
    I was about to upgrade my rig to Ryzen7, but I this let me wait a bit more for the things to come. The Ryzen7 (1700) dropped its price about 10 Euros during ther last week, but if you can get a 7nm CPU which does the same or even more, I am happy to delay my purchase.

    one thing really pisses me off is the single threaded nature of antivirus apps.

    there are thousands of files on my drive, but an antivirus will scan it only one at a time.

    why not open up 4 scan threads and check the files 4 times faster on a quad core system?

    i have to do it manually for different directories cos the app developers dont have this simple common sense.

    From what I've heard it's just very easily scalable, as it was designed to be from the ground up. Doesn't necessarily mean AMD are super happy with it, but they probably are all things considered.

    Did they fix the hardware vulnerability? Or we sprinkle pixy dust on it and its OK?
