Default Max # of cores on native linux client?

Just wondering - because i'm thinking of building a dual X5650 xeon server and consolidate all my computing needs into one server system - what is the max # of cores that the native linux version 6.29 client can handle?
Can you do a './fah6 -smp 24 -bigadv'?

Of course you can! I don't know if there is a core limit, but there is a 48 cores system on top folding system on this forum: Folding Forum • View topic - Top -bigadv systems

As far as I know, there is no limit. I know for certain that it supports at least 32 threads.

There are people on the folding forum that have used up to 45 cores going from memory.

Yep, look here:

Folding Forum • View topic - Top -bigadv systems

Look at the top few systems.

I'm thinking of doing something similar but with the A3 BigAdv units some of this stuff is deprecated a bit in my mind, so I'm waiting for Win SMP BigAdv A3s to come about before I decide on a big, single monster investment with 24+ cores.

EDIT: You can also see the 2684 BigAdv A3 units here to compare (loosely):
