Having 200 cores won't help you with anything unless you explicitly customize your code to make use of them.

Subject: Re: Windows Hi-DPI
The NVIDIA Control Panel allowed me to disable SLI completely and I even rebooted. I also upgraded to Java 8u72.
Sadly JavaFX still performs like a one-legged dog dragging a cannon ball on a chain.
All other 3D apps, games etc. perform blindingly fast as I would expect.
So, if it's not an SLI or driver problem, what is going on here (or not going on)?

I've grabbed my driver directly from the Intel website. Possibly your system runs an older driver that causes JavaFX not to use HA.
