- Windows 10 - Intel 9700 3Ghz (8 Core - NO hyperthreading) - 64gb memory
- 10Gb fiber optic backbone. Fiber media converter to Auralic Vega G2
Roon Client installed on the same machine separately from Roon Server.
I’ve managed to do upsampling to DSD512 by manually setting the processor affinity for the RoonAppliance task to 2 cores and running at AboveAverage priority.
This allows for upsampling in Roon to DSD512 at 1.0x processing speed - barely enough apparently.
The Roon Appliance task shows no interest in using more than 2 cores at a time even if explicitly assigned via affinitiy.
I have exhausted all networking and processing avenues in this pursuit. At this point it would appear that a new processor is in my future.
My question is whether the RoonAppliance is thread based? i.e. It will use 2 cores or 2 threads but not 2 hyperthreaded cores (4 threads).
I think I know the answer to this but wanted to confirm.
