I am sorry for the misinformed post a short while back about the affinity. I am here to correct this. After a more complete testing a different concludion.
Test system:
CPU- E8500 core duo OVC to 4.2 MGZ
Video- EVGA 8800 GT
4 Gigs Corsair ram 850
Hannspree 28 inch widescreen
Vista 64 bit
AVG using Black Death
Water 1
Resolution 1680x1050

Using affinity option in game for 1,2,3
[rts]
ProcessAffinityMask=2
mouseUse=2
joyUse=1
trackIRUse=1
DisableIME=0
locale=

Affinity 1= FPS-117
Affinity 2= FPS-123
Affinity 3= FPS-86

Using both cores is slower, my second cpu is the best
It gets better.
Disable Affinity in config.
[rts]
;ProcessAffinityMask=2
mouseUse=2
joyUse=1
trackIRUse=1
DisableIME=0
locale=
Now manually change the affinity in Task Manager
CPU=0 or first cpu- FPS 55
CPU=1 or second cpu- FPS 57
CPU=0 and 1 or both cpu- FPS 88

Conclusion: With my setup it is better to tell IL2 what affinity to use in the config then to alt tab out and manual set. Using one core is better than 2.

Sorry for any confusion.

I have run countless tests using ProcessAffinityMask and other settings in conf.ini

ProcessAffinityMask=2 has always run best for me. There are numerous threads here for performance that either myself, theGozr, and some others have made contributions in.
