    Sudden drop in rendering performance


      Hi all. 


      I have render multiple frames simultaneously enabled, and am using 3 cores with 2 gb each. 

      So yesterday, I noticed that my render speeds were slowing down dramatically, almost as if it were using only one core.  Curious, I took a look at my CPU performance.  What I saw was this:

      This is definitely different from my usual utilization which is a smooth line near 80%.  I checked and my CPU isn't overheating, and performance wise my system is not experiencing any lag.  What's puzzling is that when I rendered the same sequence a couple of days ago, it rendered with normal speeds. 


      Any ideas?
