What Does 256 CPUs Look Like In Task Manager?

An Intel employee posted a screenshot of the Windows task manager showing 256 cores running on Windows Server 2008 R2.

Windows Server 2008 R2 uses the same kernel as Windows 7, which can now accommodate up to 256 processors.

"Sometime between now and when we’re more likely to see machines with this level of parallelism it might be an appropriate area for some UI redesign," he commented. "I don’t know many IT administrators or developers that have a 30" LCD monitor, okay I know one and it isn’t me unfortunately."


And development will still moan they need more!!
