    I'm planning to rebuild one of my PC's.The reviews on the new AMD 8150 indicate its best features are in heavily multi-threaded apps,while Intel is better at single threads and "branches". Can anyone comment on how E@H's work matches up to these?

      As far as I know, Einstein doesn't have multithreaded WUs but Milkyway@Home does. It should excel on there

        The app or the work units arenĀ“t multithreaded but boinc is. So your cpu would crunch 8 work units at once.
