AMD's 32-core, 64-thread Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and Poser

The 32 core CPU 2990WX only runs on 1 of the 4 NUMA cores, With the current version of Poser 188.8.131.52764 . That means it only uses 1/4th of the power, or 8 of the 32 cores for actual rendering, even though the settings is set to use 32 threads.
Now rendering is supposed to be VERY easy to run parallel. Blender cycles (which Superfly is based on) has no problems using all 32 cores.
Could you please provide an update for Poser 11, so that we can use the new CPU for rendering?
Currently I feel like an idiot upgrading my system.
Sorry about asking, but are you sure that you have set the 32 core Creator mode and not the 8 core game mode? It requires a reboot to set. I guess the Task Manager is the fastest way to check the number of cores.

A few days ago, AMD released the new "dynamic local mode" that may speed up slow games and I guess problematic apps. More info here.
Weird bug. Have read most reviews and rendering apps scale to well, with some exceptions like LuxMark (luxrender) and even that is better than 8 cores. Is it the same in FireFly and SuperFly renders? Since Poser may have a stupid 32 thread limit, disable SMT in the Ryzen Master tool and reboot, may help.
