The shitty thing is that if you have a decent CPU the "CPU big" is costing a lot of wasted wattage.
Restricting CGMiner to a single core (@ 100%) reduced power consumption at the wall by 40W. Make me think we would save another ~10W if it had no CPU bug.
Is there any way to setup an "automatic CPU afinnity?". i.e. anytime program "CGMINER.EXE" launches it is restricted to core #3?
for win7, use shortcut like that:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start /affinity 2 /d C:\bitcoin\phoenix-1.60 C:\bitcoin\phoenix-1.60\phoenix.exe -u http://user:pass@localhost:8332
-k phatk DEVICE=0 VECTORS AGGRESSION=12 BFI_INT WORKSIZE=256 -q 1
affinity 2 is 3rd core
