Stata/MP takes advantage of your computer’s multicore processors to perform its computations in parallel. Your commands run faster; much faster. You can analyze data in one-half to two-thirds the time on inexpensive dual-core desktops and laptops, in one-quarter to one-half the time on quad-core desktops, and in even less time on workstations and servers with up to 64 cores.
