BigAdv on i7-3770?

Looking through the FAQs and forums, I found a lot of discussion, but not much recent info...

Can an i7-3770S (hyperthreadded) at 3.1 GHz Fold BigAdv WUs on Win7-64? If so, is it worthwhile to try, or would it push the deadline limits?

The machine is only lightly used otherwise, and only 3-4 hours/day, and is currently Folding regular SMP WUs.

Quad core (even with HT) doesn't meet the BA 16 core requirement.

You need 16 cores these days for BA's.

. . . and it would certainly miss the deadlines.

OK. Just asking. Saw previous chatter about 8-thread BigAdv WUs...
