Dual “ocho-core” computing

We just got our new dual Intel Xeon 8-core computer (= 16 cores, 32 threads). The Tesla GPU is beating the CPUs in the 1 billion generation *BEAST race with our Agama data. This isn’t the case with the Tamiasciurus data that Andreas brought in – the CPUs crush the GPU with his data. When using nucleotide substitution models, the GPU is only beneficial when there is a large number of distinct site patterns.

Check it out! Ready to run 32 CPU cores!
