Hi Janus!

I got a hardware problem with one of my comps and had to made some changes to my systems.
Now I have an AMD X6 Phenom II 1045T in one of them and started the first WU a while ago. Later I noticed via task manager that the Sunflower-app doesn't seem to use all of the six cores, BOINC shows only "active (4 tasks)" and the other two cores are busy elsewhere.
Now I wonder why. Is Sunflower only using every 4 available cores, means: 4 cores, then 8, then 12 and so on? Looking at some comps in the stats and comparing their result times this seems to be the case to me.
Or could this be due to still using client version 6.13.12?

Problem solved itself.
Looks like it is/was indeed a problem of the older client, I updated to 7.0.30 this morning and it uses all six cores now.
