i have a computer with more than 3GHz CPU and 1Gb of Ram
but when i run my matlab simulation, my cpu usage always is less than 50 percent and my inuse virtual memory - for matlam.exe - is less than 277Mb (I see this information in TaskManager and I am using Windows XP SP1)
what is wrong?
why MATLAB use only a part of my CPU or Virtual memory abilities?

It may be that you are running a duel core processor and it is not optomised to use a duel processor system.

Do you see two seperate graphs when you look in the task manager?
