  1. Hello,

    I have a question in relation to two processors.
    To run 32 very littles instances (minigames) in a machine, it's running fine on Intel Core i7 920 or i need a 2X Intel Core Xeon E5530?

    Good day :)

  2. I would say the Xeon`s due to the amount of cores, and clock speed does not matter if you are running small instances.
  3. Okay and if i run 16 instances with 8 players on each (128 players), the E5530 X2 is okay ?
