claude:
possibly, but as I understand it the slowdown will come from user-mode / kernel-mode context switches taking more time, which means user-mode-computation-heavy workloads like rendering might not be very badly affected

My 6 year old computer has a second generation processor.  :thumbs:

Thanks for the information, Anon.
My processor is 4th generation Intel Core, so should be okay.
If anyone has Intel Core and wants to check the generation, in your Device Specifications you should have something like this:
Processor  Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU
The generation is the first digit of the four digit number, in my case 4.
(In Windows 10, Device specifications can be accessed by right clicking the Start button, then selecting "System").
