My System Specs

Default

is a bit confusing : this change is for the big beta? or simply regular bigadv units?, mm, seems like the regular bigadv. Bummer, right when I was upgrading to 12 cores. But that also means that all the donors with high powered single socket systems are in the same whole : all i7s and even the Bulldozer, leaving indeed only really powerful machines to do those jobs. I guess too many people trying to cut corners under Linux with those Thubans@4GHz and i5 2500k, because I have seen Zodac as being part of the DAB. And while creating a workaround for that would not be an issue it would be interesting to see what would be the minimum required for a 16 core machine to finish in time. I guess on the upside, we can still hope that Linux will net more PPD than Windows.
