Demo Instructions & Notes:
  1. Move the first slider. Notice how smooth the movement is.
  2. The second slider has a 150ms delay. Notice how the slider jumps when trying to move it. The operation is not as smooth and this impair interactivity.
  3. The third slider includes the work from the second slider. However, the work is performed on a secondary thread. Notice the UI performane is fairly smooth.

Concepts shown in demo:
Silverlight can split work up amongst up to 8 logical CPU cores. This allows for the creation of responsive user interfaces.
