Wanting to remain faithful to the CERN I have 2 questions to ask you:

I will buy a computer with 16 hearts and as I could note that the number of task on the lhc crash landing regularly.
Did I want to know if a optimatisation were envisaged?

Is what that there is a project under development concerning the GPU grid computing although the CERN (according to the articles on the Net) seems to concentrate on the cloud computing?

Thank in advance for your answer

What optimisations would you expect for 16 core machine? running 16 tasks at once is fine.

Eric talked about GPU tasks but I don't think he has much time to develop the app.
