DSP % versus actual CPU usage?

Recommended Posts

Even though I have Pro X setup to use 6 logical cores on my i7 I still see things like "DSP; 48% [63% Max] in the performance monitor in the lower left corner. If I check the Windows 8.1 Task Manager I never see utilization above 20% and most of the logical cores are seeing relatively little use. Why does Pro X seem to significantly overestimate how it's using the the CPU? I was just expecting that with multi-core support the DSP: display should be similar to the Task Manager display of CPU usage.

I've even seen displays of over 100% when I was really laying in some heavy VST instrument usage. As an engineer I always see 100% as the hard limit. What the heck does Pro X mean when the display is over 100%!!!

It's the same whether I'm using Pro X 32 or 64 though 64 seems a bit more CPU efficient even running the 32 bit bridge.

See the screenshot below.

I imagine some Magix guru out there knows the answer to this.
