    ISS Technology Update Volume 8, Number 5 When to disable processor cores While disabling cores may seem counterintuitive to delivering higher performance, there are at least three situations in which disabling processor cores can prove beneficial. Reducing power use. Disabling processor cores reduces processor power use. If a server is being used in an application environment that does not depend heavily on multi-threading, disabling cores can lower power consumption without materially affecting performance.
