hey Brink sory bringing up back an old thread. the shortcut works great for launching application rather than launch application -> task manager -> manually change affinity.
however, what if say I wish to change affinity while a software/program already launched is there anyway to use a shortcut to still adjust the affinity for that currently running program without having to use task manager and manually change it? basically im looking to toggle different affinities with a running software without having to end process and relaunch it.
this might seem silly but i have many uses for it, to maximize my hardware performance due to software being unoptimized to take full advantage of my cpu. examples below:
using Broadwell-E CPU which has turbo max 3.0, it allow me to adjust frequency say 1 core at 5ghz while all core load at only 4ghz, when unoptimized software running on 1 core capable of using the highest frequency I set, works well with software that ONLY uses 1 core/thread. however in case I have a software which is semi-optimized, sometimes uses all cores, sometimes only uses 1 or 2 cores/threads, I want to be able to toggle affinities while software running under different scenarios to take advantage highest frequency possible.
ty for quick respond, this is changing priority though but not changing affinity during a process, is it possible to change to different affinity while a process is already running without task manager and just use of a shortcut or CMD line?
First, thank you for the information, it's very informative! But I have a problem that I need help with, I have a dual processor system, with 56 threads total. Win10 affinity selection shows threads 0-27 (Node 0) and then repeats for the 2nd processor with 0-27 (Node 2).
What modifications to the original instructions would I need to follow for this system?
Three of the GPU's are controlled from one CPU, and the 4th is controlled from the second CPU. I need to save a few threads from the 1st CPU to assist/feed the GPU's attached to it.
Hello Brink,i treid to change affinity but did't work.I tried c:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start /affinity 1 notepad.exe,it worked.I want to change affinity of MetaTredaer4 of XM,I tried below
c:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "terminal" /affinity 1 "c:\fx\xm\terminal.exe"
(I installed some MT4,so I installed MT4 of XM in this folder(c:\fx\xm).)
but it tells me that windows cannot find "terminal.exe".
Full path of application is correct,is the program name wrong?
