Re: Enable multicore calculation ?
You need to get the personal grid edition to make use of all the cores. I had the same problem with my 4 core G5 Mac Pro (since retired). I believe that Mathematica uses one core for the front end and one for the kernel by default. On a two core system, or even a 4 course system, that is usually sufficient, since one usually has other processes running. However, with an 8 core system, you should look into the personal grid edition to maximize throughput. george On Apr 26, 2008, at 3:40 AM, guerom00 wrote: > Hello everyone, > > I'm running Mathematica 6.0.2 on a MacPro with 8 cores.
