Question about Using Both Cores

    Ok, I have an AMD 64x2. If I am running an app which is maxing out
    one core, is there any way at the windows level to tell it to use the
    other core to "help out" (for a lack of better words)?

    One example is MAME, it's maxing out one core, while the other core is
    virtually going unused, anyway or any applications that might do this?


    Thanks,
    Nick

    Usually applications written to support multicore.
