I don't think he meant 32bit or 64bit issue, he said single core issue. Which completely explains why I didn't see all that much of a problem. The not so new XEON chips were not hyperthreaded, and that's why my work machine was showing it as you said Shawn. My home computer could not replicate the problem as it is hyperthreaded. I've had in the past 3 chips that were single cores that were 64bits not 32.

Makes sense. I figured 64-bit OSs only ran on dual core or more systems. I was never much into Pentium Pro or Xeon processors back in the day. But I hear about Xeons being made still. I thought they were all dual core at least these days.
Xeons will be around awhile, in fact there's a new series out now which is considered the Xeon i7 by some. y old single core 64bit cpu's were AMD FX series chips, so yea very rare to see an intel based single core.
