It has more to do with whatever tasks the OS is doing elsewhere (including its own overhead) as network I/O streaming by itself should
not use much CPU power at all. For example I'm successfully streaming using a NAS box with a low-powered ARM v5 CPU that is far
less capable than a typical P4 and the CPU meter barely moves while streaming. But...that same NAS is only
used for streaming and the entire low-footprint Linux based OS for the NAS is optimized for such use.
, most computers with enough horsepower to run W7 should be able to stream just fine as long as they are not also being used for other CPU intensive tasks simultaneously.Edited by bluechunks - 10/5/12 at 8:02am
