Re: gEDA-user: going multi core

If the new system is anything like this list, you should expect
a significant slowdown as the CPUs argue amongst themselves
as to who gets to do what, when and how not to do something.

I have not seen a significant advantage to single process geda tools
execution. I suspect that some of the backend graphics might benefit.
It is while doing long CPU intensive operations (FPGA synthesis) having
the other cores free is really appreciated.

It is going to be the the usual upgrade in computational power:
More memory, more storage, more speed. Speed is supposed to be
delivered by four cores (AMD athlon). My current desktop contains
just one such core. Can I expect a spectacular speed-up of gschem
and pcb? Or are they throttled by the graphic card anyway?
