Hi,

We have some V1 (V0) and V3 Xeon(s) workstations that we use for crunching, both of which have AVX and AVX2 respectively, and I was wondering if these are used by CPDN?

And if so, if you would expect a big difference between AVX and AVX2, the latter performing better.

I did a search within the message boards for AVX and AVX2 but nothing was forth coming.

Thanks.

Technically, on the basis that ARM has/is being sold to SoftBank, I guess now it also partially if not fully Japanese.

Being from Cambridge, and ARM being from the heritage of Acorn/BBC Micro, this is something of a moot issue here in Cambridge..
