RE: "Optimisation for Intel's Nehalem platform (Core ix CPUs)"

New 32nm Core iX is certainly worth testing. The change made in cPlay could also benefit certain AMD CPUs.

Intel has made significant improvements in Nehalem and with the right BIOS we could see power consumption drop to just 10 watts doing full 192k with SRC@145db SNR. We should see Core i3 32nm CPUs in the next few weeks which can use DDR3 RAM (which is better than DDR2 using just 1.7V).

Could this be a better platform? Not sure as the current platform is magnificent.
