    Windows 10 Threading Issues


    I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. My computer processor is AMD E1-1200@1.4GHz. I've noticed that several programs now stutter instead of play smoothly. It could be because Windows 10 has a new Threading system and the old programs are using outdated threading techniques, or the fact that Windows 10 has poor performance.

    Sure, 1.4GHz is slow, but I didn't have this problem in Windows 8.1. I notice the threading problem the most when playing a youtube video. Just showing the youtube GUI causes the video to stutter. When I look at task manager, everything seems to be normal on CPU usage. When I make realtime java applications, I notice stuttering.

    Would someone like to explain what Microsoft has changed about Threading please?

    Turn details on and monitor core usage with various programs. Should be as even as possible. Threads are tied to cores.

    I opened eclipse. After it finished opening, I monitored the CPU usage. Unfortunately the AMD System Monitor only updates every second. What I noticed is that core usage is slightly biased toward the first core, and it tends to stray from even usage quite often. The usage I would have to say is--relative to the first core at 50%-- 50% +- 36%. After eclipse settled down, core 1 became extremely biased, and core two was consistently 50-80% of less than core 1 (e.g core[0]=50%, core[1]=10%).

    Does it help to say that just keeping my laptop on my bed with the vent on the right side being somewhat covered by a book the thickness of my laptop to use a mouse is causing my CPU and fan speed to go up to 67-75% heat and speed, respectively (which I noticed causes much throttling within my CPU, reduce of about 200-300 MHz when I want a consistent 1.4GHz)?

    The only time I ever see Core usage consistently "even" is when 100% of the CPU is used :P

    I observed playing a song and idle spotify; same effect as eclipse.
