FAH SMP Affinity Changer

Have you heard of the FAH SMP Affinity Changer? It’s a little program that monitor the process of the FAH client for each core and will redistribute the FAH process accordingly in order to achieve maximum performance for the SMP F@H client!

Here’s some before and after results from me from the Core2Duo processor running a single WinSMP client:

One thing is, it only works with a C2D processor running a single WinSMP client or for a C2Q processor running 2x WinSMP clients. But if you are running a single WinSMP client on a C2Q, it will not have any performance gain on it!!
