My guess would be switched-mode power supply (aka PSU).

I thought he was referring to SMPs, the multi cpu core folding. You can run more than one, when the OS doesn't make good use of 4 cores (most Windows) or on an i7 Intel CPU.

So hey, is this better than using the linux virtual machines to get more throughput? I guess it would be good for 32 bit os machines. Anyway, is this useful?

Only for Windows since there the workload is not balanced all that well.

I think the issue is finally resolved in Win 7.
