Sounds reasonable, I’d agree with you. Although…and I wouldn’t know if there’s another way to manage that, but the nice value stays at 19 regardless of the setting in preferences, which is pretty “nice” (har har). Then again, the issue of the setting not sticking when re-checking preferences remains - hard to know whether that setting is actually getting used and the UI is just not reporting the setting correctly, or if it’s never actually switched active/reniced. So I don’t really know if 19 is the standard or relaxed value.
I guess while on the general topic of CPU usage, I’ll add the following comments maybe for the devs:
<comment removed, I was confused about something unrelated>
- I mentioned it in another thread, but is Chronos supposed to be CPU-only, no GPU? I wonder if it might be worth stating in the tooltip or the online FAQ which resource is used for a given model.
