I would be interested to know whether anybody has tried FLUENT running in parallel on the new 6-core processors such as L5640? Does the speed-up scale OK when using all 6 cores on one processor?

I am using intel i7 (8x)2.93ghz processor. Using 6 cores will definitely speed up the calculation, but I don't know how much, but probably not 6x.

sbaffini will become famous soon enough
I'm going to try them soon...but i heard that INTEL solved the annoying scaling problem of the previous Xeon Generation (which was affecting not only fluent)
