Laptop only using small amount of CPU (Solved)

Im trying to run a small game server for just some friends, and its really bad, From what i can find its only suing the power of 1 logical processor, And i dont know how to make it use all of them.

The game server would have to support more than a single core in order to use more of them.

There does seem to be a bit of headroom from the usage they are currently showing. But it also highly depends on what game they are trying to host too and might be they set up the resource allocation wrong.

 

Or the other big thing here would be DON'T USE WIFI FOR A GAME SERVER :p.

Might even be that their internet is just not good enough too or there is too much traffic from other users downloading or uploading things and such.

It will use all of it, Only when i start to stress it hard enough, Which then it will go from lots of lag to almost perfectly fine (And im more than likely doing everything wrong, Im horrible with computers)

Space engineers has multi core support which is huger. So that is where it helps a ton.

From some single core cinebench r15 results it's about 14% faster BUT that is in exclusive single thread. Multi thread it is very much so slower.
