I have an AMD Dual Core 3800+ processor and I play a game called Splinter Cell. In order for me to play it well, I need to set the processor affinity to CPU 0 only. For some reason if both cores work with the game, it lags horribly.
My question is: Is it safe to do this? Doesn't this put a lot of strain on CPU 0 while CPU 1 does absolutely nothing? Can it damage the core?
