Dear All,

I am thinking of buying a dual- or quad-core machine and need advice.
I need to run various optimizations on a steady flow problem which now takes 3-6 hrs to complete on a single core P4/1.7GHz.
Number of cells - between 25,000 to 80,000.

Will parallel processing help to speed up the calculation on such system?
