Oh, I didn't realize you specified "4 / 8" rather than "8 / 4" (like we would for a more typical system with multiple logical CPUs per core). That's not how this notation was meant to be used, but it's a curious extension we could consider for cases such as yours. I think it'd get very confusing and ambiguous when those CPUs also start supporting multiple threads per core, though. For example, what if your chip supported 2 threads/core? Would you specify "8 / 8", because you'd run 8 threads on 4 cores, and have another 4 cores idle (which would in fact be the optimal way to use that chip)? But people would surely read this as 8 threads running on 8 cores! So let's not go for those extensions. I'll fix your entry to "4 / 4" now, because for our purposes the chip has 4 cores. Alexander
