The number of threads that actually are launched depends on your CPU and the version of AmiBroker you are using. Standard Edition has a limit of 2 (two) threads per Analysis window. Professional Edition has a limit of 32 threads per Analysis window. In addition to this limit, AmiBroker will detect how many logical processors are reported by Windows (for example a single Intel i7 920 CPU is recognized as 8 logical processors (4 cores x 2 hyperthreading)) and will not run more threads per single Analysis window than the number of logical processors.
