Stata gets the most out of multicore systems.
No other statistical software comes close.
Because speed is most important when your problems are big, Stata/MP supports even larger datasets than Stata/SE.
Stata/SE can analyze up to 2 billion observations. Stata/MP can analyse 10 to 20 billion observations on the largest computers currently available and is ready to analyse up to 1 trillion observations once computer hardware catches up. Stata/MP also allows 120,000 variables compared to 32,767 variables allowed by Stata/SE.
*The maximum number of observations is limited by the amount of available RAM on your system.
Stata/MP is 100% compatible with other versions of Stata.
Analyses do not have to be reformulated or modified in any way to obtain Stata/MP's speed improvements.
