Are any of the EDI algorithms / stages optimized for the new Intel Xeon cpu's ?
For placeDesign + optDesign -preCTS I am only seeing a 7% runtime improvement.
E5-2690 14hours vs X5680 15hours probably due to the 1600 vs 1333 mem speed.
According to Intel most of the improvements are in the FPU.
Other FP intensive applications such a Matlab are showing 50-60% runtime improvement : )
