This may be off topic, but I have a new computer with Centrino Duo processor... I have moved up a series of Dell laptops M60->M70-M90.

I have searched and searched for compilation options to take advantage of the two procesors. I do not see an option to use -mtune, for example.

Any ideas of where to look, or is this hopeless.

Thanks for all the help.

There are no compiler flags for using multiple CPUs, you have to write extra code for that.

Do a search for "multithreading". But I must warn you, this is no easy topic.

Before you ask: There is no real multithreading support in OpenGL, but you can of course let one thread do the drawing and another thread for example physics.
