    With great power comes great responsibility. What are you going to do with this beast? :)

    Lock it to one core and pretend it's 2003, hopefully.

    Blasphemy! lol
    Still, I can see how limiting the number of cores might be helpful if the power bill becomes a concern.

    The irony is that this is probably more eco friendly than most powerful 2003 single core chips anyways.

    I would have some applications for that in scientific computing. But more realistically jackhead could render stuff in blender while the encoding h265 and playing a modern game, with two players on the same machine (2 screens etc) playing online, all while hosting a semi-succesful website, and have a few cores idle.

    I guess you would ROCK in the fold@home project.

    So I just though of that thread because I got to play with such a system nowadays...
    2 x 18C/32T Xeons with 128GB ram and a P4000...
    It's satisfying to see all threads and RAM at 100% at the same time... Gotta love OpenMP.

    @Jackhead, what is cache and frequencies of your engineering sample?
