The newer version of Prime that G80 just linked him to runs on all available cores.

You can use either Prime or Orthos, Redeemed. They both work the same. If you run Prime, just make sure you run the one that G80 linked you to or run two instances of it from different folder locations on your drive with one set to affinity 0 and the other to affinity 1.
