I get the 8 core thing and 16,well that is double of 8 so that makes sense,but where did this 12 core thing come from?
12-Core (or 12 threads) is the current minimum CPU requirement to be assigned the largest big advanced projects, specifically 6903 and 6904. As of 16 January, the minimum CPU thread count, as reported by the operating system to the FAH client, for all big advanced project work units, not just the largest, will be 16.

To paraphrase The Holy Hand Grenade skit from Monty Python's, The Search for the Holy Grail: The count shall be 16 and 16 shall be the count.

This is not an issue, at least with ubuntu folders. The issue is the deadline getting shortened, I believe.

That is what many of us assume.

EDIT: OK after a bit a browsing it seems a 8 core desktop cpu from Intel is guaranteed.

The desktop SB-E is natively a octo core but with two disabled somehow, not sure if desktop variants of SB-E will come fully operational but Xeon with all the cores is to be released and I assume that desktop IB-E will offer 8 cores too.

It all depends on how my money goes in the next month.I have my rig (with the HPTX motherboard trays about 70% complete,so I do have a home for a SR-2 if the funds ever materialize.Then I must decide if I spend that much on folding gear.At this point it is mobo,cpus' and RAM.all else is ready or very close to ready.I may get that "B" stock mobo just to space gpus out big time and run it on one cpu.

The problem with an 8 core SB-E Chip is going to be your PPD/W. I, like hoth, Just sold off my 3 week old 3930k because that thing was freaking power hungry. Running itself @ 4.7Ghz, a basic X600 GPU, A H70 w/ Yate loons and 8GB 1.5v RAM I was able to get 142k PPD, HOWEVER i was pulling 365W from the wall!!!

They are not a power friendly chip for folding. Over on the Multi CPU thread most guys are reporting 2-3x the ppd @ only like 100-200W more input.

Now if you live in an area that delivers cheap power or you dont have to pay for your power, ie Student or live at home, This might not be a problem to you. But it was going to cast me an extra $100+ a month to fold 24/7 on that thing. Now thats not to say im going to abandon intel Desktop CPUs. More than likely im going to hold onto my ASUS 2011 and wait to see what IB-E holds in store next year.

To someone folding on an i7-950, Phenom 9650, 2 Fermi GPU's, and a 9800GT, all in windows, that looks like really damn good PPD/W. tongue.gif
142k PPD for 365W/hr would be more than twice my total PPD at less than half my total power consumption. rolleyes.gif

Good thing i only pay $0.081/kwh....

LOL I can see where that would be an improvement!! Here in Socal im basically folding @ $0.24/kwh seeing that just out of normal use we end up in the upper tier on usage. Freaking SDGE. mad.gif

Truthfully with the cost of equipment and electricity to run that equipment going up I see folding getting pulled out of an inexpensive way to further enjoy your computer. I must run every piece of equipment I have 24/7 and still have a hard time making 100k (more like 85-90K). A man needs dedicated equipment and cut a part of his paycheck away to fund the hobby anymore these days.
