FocalBlade is way too slow now, and my AMD X2 doesn't help either, FB being single threaded. SO please.....

FocalBlade will become much faster and support for dual cores and multiple processors is also planned.

I don't think that supporting hyperthreading will produce any speed gain. I suspect that it would rather decrease the processing speed of FocalBlade.

The next major upgrade of FocalBlade will render much faster on single core processors and even faster on hyperthreading and multi-core processors.

Still, FocalBlade will never be as fast as Photoshop's Unsharp Mask filter, because it does much more internal processing which also leads to better sharpening results.

Bought a quad-core processor today...

I just upgraded my dual-core CPU to quad (Intel Core 2 Q6600, 2.4GHz quad-core) for just 269EUR - the same price I paid for my dual core 2.13GHz Intel processor just a year ago. This autumn is definitely a good time for increasing processing power :)

I hope the parallelized Focalblade is coming along... I will gladly help with any beta testing you might need done. I am a software developer myself and know the difference between useful and useless bug reports.
