Topic: 2 questions about hardware and number of parallel threads

Hi traders. I have two questions that have involved me a lot. Please anyone can answer.

Question 1: It is written on the site that recommended hardware for forex strategy builder pro is:
                 CPU: a modern 4 cores processor. RAM: 8 GB or more.
                 my question is if our CPU has more than 4 cores for example 8, 12 or 16 cores; Does the software uses more of
                 CPU cores and will performance faster? or no and 4 of cores is maximum of cores that the software use them and
                 more than 4 cores are ineffective?

Question 2: Now suppose we use a CPU with X cores and 2X threads. What number should we set the "number of parallel
                  threads" option in the generator settings?

Please anyone who knows answer. Thanks a lot.
