a 22k atom system on 8 CPU's may scale badly. Did you happen to test scaling for
your system, by comparing runs on 1, 2, 4 and 8 CPU's? I'd guess that 8 CPU's
may be only 20-30% faster than 4 CPU's (but I'd like to know if I'm wrong!).

There are benchmarks on www.gromacs.org, surely there is also (something
like) an Origin tested, or at least an r12k or r14k machine.
