AGi32’s radiosity calculation, ray-trace rendering and most calculation point operations will utilize multi-core configurations. The more cores, the faster the program execution. Note: AGi32 currently can only support up to 32 cores (additional cores will have to be disabled to ensure proper operation). For more information on this and other hardware specifics affecting AGi32, please see the Computer Hardware Recommendations for AGi32 Article.
