    Hi Alex,

    Yes, Gurobi will try to use precisely the amount of threads specified by the parameter Threads, even if this would exceed the number of physical or logical cores. In rare cases, this might be beneficial, but exceeding the number of physical cores usually does not pay off.

    Additionally, not all solver components can make use of multiple threads, so you might observe times during the solve when even only one thread is used.

    Best regards,
    Mario
