Code processing on single core?

Why does Microsoft's Performance Monitor visually report that the reason AI is taking so long to open and re-save a 1.7 GB file, and crashing randomly, seemingly is because it's using only one of the many CPU cores?

No parallel programming yet to take advantage of at least 2 or maybe even more of the available cores?? 

All system resources are well under 25% max. (Overall CPU is at 1% - 3%, memory below 10%, SSD 0%; yet 1 core is pegged at 100% and even 125% [overclocked] when AI is saving and sometimes crashing) load, and AI is having a very difficult time. CS6

Let's just all go back to chiseling on stone tablets.

Adobe programs use standard system APIs and file systems. Not sure what you expect to happen here. 1.7 GB is simply a huge file and the file I/O behavior wouldn't change even if AI itself was a much better optimized program. This stuff would have to change much more fundamentally in Windows itself and that's beyond Adobe's sphere of influence. The only thing they could fix are poitential crashes which no doubt relate to generating file previews and messing with internal data structures, but that's about it.

If a file is "too big" for AI to handle reasonably (over 80 layers), why not throw a warning to the user, or allow layers to be moved between AI documents effortlessly (unless they drag and drop now...) to breakup/transfer or downsize (layers) per file if necessary (instead of copying/pasting the entire layer, i.e., many clicks vs. a few).

Even IF AI was re-writing the entire 1.7GB file (which it shouldn't), theoretically my m.2 ssd should be able to save that in seconds.  YET, it's taking minutes, with nothing else happening (i.e., bus traffic) on the system.  What exactly low level protocols is AI using?

The engineers are currently re-engineering the file format. But you won't get that in version CS6.

CS6 is the equivalent of a stone tablet.

While all what Mylenium wrote applies, Illustrator has improved speed over the last versions.

I am having endless problems with AI taking forever to save large files and very often crashing.  Making my life a living hell. All started after the last update.

Wow, unacceptable to crash on large files. Maybe stamp an age (or file limit) size on "the box".  (a "don't expect to exceed", like that old 55 MPH sign on the road and everyone now is hopping along at 80, time to speed up Adobe - what was that song "can't drive 55"). I don't think her post was too far "off topic."

But suppose it is a bug and Adobe fix it. That won't change your stone age software. Why do you say it shouldn't be rewriting the whole file? Is that based on inside knowledge or a wish?

Maybe first you could say why it does.

Seems to be "okay" up to about 1 GB.

Adobe is KNOWN for large filres, look at PDF's.  

Why turn a blind eye to this, many people use "legacy" products that still function just fine. 

Talk to any of the "old timers" in tech, those that have been around coding long before Adobe, and they still have their trusted programs for this very reason.

Banks still you Fortran on "mainframes".

Spent about two days copying over 100 layers out to new grouped files since CS6 can't handle it.

There's no point discussing WHY museum software does what it does or WISHING it were different. Like any object in a museum, it is what it is, and will never be anything else.

History teaches great lessons. Like, how not to repeat failures or what to improve.

So, that said, what is the current file limit size for nominal operation (not crashes)?
