Hi everyone!
:)

Just wondering... (i'm not that rich yet, but who knows...one day?...)
:lol:

What if you have a multiprocessor motherboard that supports 4 quad-processors...

=> Can Indigo have the 16 threads work at the same time?

Thanks for your replies!
:D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-threading
Essentially, it's using each core for 2 threads for ~50% better performance

Yes but as I told before, the i7 is hyperthreaded - so it's acutally 8 threads :)
