Using 16 of 32 threads

I'm using an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X.

Following a tutorial I have runned this command on TLC console: "set_global_assignment -name NUM_PARALLEL_PROCESSORS ALL".

But it seems that it's not using all the threads: "Parallel compilation is enabled and will use 16 of the 32 processors detected".

Also in Compilation Process Settings, Maximun processors allowed can't be setted above 16.

Hello,

 

I think Quartus supports 16 thread maximum. Also, After 4 core it does not effect the run time significantly.
