The experienced user looking to quickly set CPU affinity will like the simple approach of this freeware application. CPU Control's interface is easy to read and even easier to manage. Don't bother looking for a Help file. If you don't understand what this application accomplishes, you probably don't need it.
Operating CPU Control is effortless with any of the five managed modes. With a click you can set the majority of your processes to use either CPU 1 or CPU 2. Select Automatic Mode and the application immediately splits processes across each of the two CPUs. Select processes will operate over both CPUs. Users can not force those applications to use a single CPU. However, all other processes can be individually set to one or the other CPU by using the Manual Mode. Each change is immediately reflected in the Process List. The list is easily sorted by name, ID, or CPU affinity.
The Manual Mode's nine user-set profiles efficiently store process CPU affinity sets for immediate implementation for specific tasks. CPU Control won't wow users with design, bells, or whistles. It will work well at the task for which it was designed.
