Hi,

I have just got Visual Studio 2012 so just starting to use the 4.5 framework for the first time. The question I have is on Multithreading. I used the Threadpool when I was working with 3.5 framework.

However just reading on the internet there seems to be more of a focus on Tasks rather than the threadpool. So which one should I be using? Performance wise which is best? Also I have very little multi threading experince.

Thanks,
M

without getting into all the improvements made in 4.5 i strongly suggest checking this great post from code project:

Improved Multi-Threading Support in .NET 4.5

it is recommended to upgrade to 4.5 even if you don't use the new approaches and only for the background thread handling which was greatly improved.

if you wish to get more thorough overview of performance improvements in .NET 4.5 i recommend the following post from msdn:

2 main features which deals with threading and parallel tasking are The Task Parallel Library (TPL) and Parallel Linq(PLINQ).
