We won't know for sure until someone tries.. I haven't seen anyone try yet. You will have to use the same vm ware setup that the guys with amd 6 cores use to trick the client into thinking you have 8 cores... I've never done this myself..

You will need this guide:

That should have all the info you need to set it up. Sorry I can't help much beyond that. Please do let us all know if it works out, and head on over to the sandy bridge database in my sig and pass along your findings!

Technically you need 8 threads/cores for bigadv. Doing that trick may or may not work. If it did the bonus points would probably be slim to nil. I'd stick with SMP.

Yeah, you'd be leaving yourself very little/no room for errors. I think it'd be best just sticking to SMP too.

Then no, not going to happen.
If you start getting at least 15k PPD on SMP then you can try bigadv with the linux trick. I believe you need around 4.8ghz to get that much though so good luck.

I knew what you meant, but still need at least 15k.

Koven has a point if it is a 6701/6702 then that is fine, but wait for other units and check what you get.

you need to run it in linux/ubuntu to "fake" 8 cores in order to receive a -bigadv unit

follow that guide step by step, it's straight forward and works great
