I'm just curious, does software have to be designed specifically to execute X amount of threads, or is it possible to make a program that can detect what you have and work with it, without having to make specific alterations for each possibility (2, 4, 6, 8, etc...)?

Soem software can only use X amount of cores, while some are capable of using more or even less. Some can use multiple but not all to their full power.

It depends on the programs coding and can not be changed.

So it isn't in any way possible to be adaptive to what it has to work with unless it was specifically told to use X amount of cores?

Yes, its a little more complex that than. But yes, mostly like that.

Well yeah, I assume it's more complex, but I'd have no idea how to explain it, since I am not a software engineer. :??:

But that answers my questions, thank you!
