thanks for the reply Xmister, my problem with both CPU quiet and MP decision is not if they use the quad, it is that they are much less predictable than Nvidia's default hotplug
A quad needing game, will need those quad everytime u run it, not just a random draw of dice...
the best app to test this behavior is Nvidia's glowball
hotplug never locks to single core if a game need the quad
but i owe you a small apology, i based my conclusion on a previous experience of showp kernel (it was a really a mess locking so often to single core) and not yours so i will be testing it and report back (pulled the comment for now)
Nvidia's hotplug often decided that it doesn't need it, while it's obviously not true if you consider the 10fps drop it causes.
