- Do they run under both Windows and Linux?
I would say the requirements are:-
AMD: Dual 12 core 61xx running at 1.7Ghz or better, no chance of dual 8 core chips making the deadline 1.7Ghz might be cutting it close - i can't find any data
Intel: Forget any notion of 16 threads doing an 8101 in time, Forget any notion of 24 threads doing an 8101 in time if they are clocked lower than 2.66Ghz.
This basically puts most "server class" hardware not capable of -bigadv, Realistically to have any sort of longevity with regards to a machine doing -bigadv you are looking at quad amd on g34, Octo AMD on Socket F or quad intel on lga1567, not sure if quad hexes on socket 604 or socket F would make it??.
They should run under both but in reality you are needing *nix to run -bigadv at this time
