My System Specs

ok, so better support for more fault tolerant hardware.
I thought they were significantly different from regular hardware? or by binned differently did you mean that it has much stricter checks?
EDIT: the key reason for this thread is that I was asking a folder what hardware he was folding on and the I7 was getting a few thousand PPD while the xeons were getting a couple hundred thousand PPD. so I was wondering if they were in some way significantly different that would help that.
