I think that "might" have been true very early on when micropartitioning
first came out on the Power5, but then only on the very large systems where
memory interleaving was important. It has been a misnomer since then.

Someone I work with told me he heard in a conference years ago that
processors should be configured in even numbers for performance reasons.
For example we have a system with .5 processors. He said it should be .6
processors. I spoke with my business partner and he had not heard of this
but was interested to know why the statement was made. It is possible that
this person misunderstood what was said at the conference or it is no longer
valid. Has anyone heard of this?
