COM Threading Models Explained - Conclusion
(Page 3 of 3 )

Hopefully you now have a good idea of how threading works in the COM components that we create. The free threading model provides us with an extreme amount of coding power, but remember that it requires complicated code to be used.

On the other hand, the apartment-threading model is as high performing when compared to the free-threading model, however it requires little coding on your part.

The choice of threading model is up to you, and you should choose whichever one suits you!
