As I understand it, some time (years?) ago the advice when using Cubase, was to disable hyperthreading (logical cores) in BIOS and use only proper hard cores.
Has this advice now changed for a modern PC/Cubase 9.5Pro setup? Are logical cores now considered to be a beneficial thing for Cubase, given the provisos of the article linked below and the 14 core limit to avoid problems?
This article by implication, seems to suggest that we can now go ahead and use up to 14 logical cores with Cubase.
Has anyone done any tests to see how much benefit or issues there are using logical cores?
I’m about to upgrade my PC from an ageing Q9650 4 core (no hyperthreading) to an i7 8700K with 12 cores, so this is of direct interest to me at this time.
