[gmx-users] Core i7 vs Core2Quad

That is incorrect.
A Core I7 is about 40% faster with hyperthreading turned off.
A Core I7 is about 65% faster with hyperthreading turned on
and running 8 processes.
What you should NOT do (but which can happen very easily)
is running on a Core I7 with hyperthreading turned on and using
only 4 processes. In that case the processes are distributed
randomly over the 8 virtual and 4 real cores and the chance
is very high that at least one real cores gets 2 mdrun processes
and your simulation is nearly 50% slower than it could be.
If somebody has a solution for this problem under Linux,
that would be extremely useful.
