Why does my CPU never max out even when my application, which eats up 40% of the CPU (but 30 – 40 % of the CPU still stays idle), being laggy?
Does that mean:
- There's a way to force the CPU to run at 100%
- CPUs are manufactured that way and the only thing I can do is purchase new hardware.
- The limitation lies with the application and the lag won't improve even with better CPU. (Assuming that the application is perfect, what I'm asking is whether software run that way?)
- Something else.
