I just ran your test and the lowest I hit was 13fps. Task Manager showed up to 67% CPU usage. Around 70% on core 0 and 60% on core 1.

The strange thing is, the simulation doesn't even have to be running for it to put a heavy load on the CPU.

This is a really cool program but I think the physics engine itself could be a lot better.

Something like this programmed with PhysX and GPU accelerated physics would be amazing.
Yeah i believe so .. its still interesting to see how it scales with different CPU's at difference speeds & configs!
