thats the power of AMD Many cores, say one could run a ST app at 5.5GHZ on a single module and then activate all other modules for transcode apps...
Impractical at this point because reboot required
Wouldn't take longer than 30 seconds to reboot and having the extra 4 pipelines in a quad core would definitely knock much more than that off a decent sized file.
It'd work for me, as I do stuff that wouldn't use 8 cores a fair chunk of the time but I do use 8 cores some of the time, usually in situations where a reboot is a small price to pay; mind you, I'm going for an IB-e 8 core (Assuming they have 8 core K/X editions..) simply because it has the core count, the IPC and (hopefully) the clocks.
