My System Specs

The kraken is only needed for computers with multiple CPUs. Each cpus has it's own set of ram so it is best to keep the threads running on the cpu that has their ram data. All it does is make sure folding threads doent try to switch back and forth between CPUs. In a single cpu system there is no need for it.

Edit: I somehow skipped the dual part and just saw quad xeon
I don't think the difference will be very big on a dual intel but it might be noticeable
