Performance comparison of MultiCharts vs Tradestation?

    Has anyone compared the performance, in particular the runtime performance of backtesting, between MultiCharts and TradeStation? I believe each is multi-threaded now, which helps, so it really depends I suppose on which has the more advanced runtime engine, compiler, etc. Anyone have experience comparing the two for long backtesting runs?

    MultiCharts wins in backtesting by a large margin. Both applications may be multi-threaded, but the TS backtesting process is only assigned to one working thread. MC would appear to be using SMP or AMP.
