Lack of WUs for Many-Core Machines

Hey all,

Frequently running into issues with a lack of WUs for many-core machines. Right now my desktop (set for 14 cores), my workstation in the office (set for 18 cores), and another workstation (12 cores) are sat doing nothing. Is this because GPUs seem to be the only game in town these days ...?

I guess I could split these into multiple CPU slots with a few cores each, but I guess then I'd lose out on the bonuses that I can rack up by throwing many cores at a WU?

TBH my PPD isn't taking too much of a hit - I think the RTX3070+GT770+P106-90 seem to manage ~4 M PPD between them so I think the CPUs are only worth a further ca. 1M PPD in total.

I think it's a lot like when there was a shortage of GPU WU's, with CPU's having 16 cores or more are chewing through the CPU WU's faster than Stanford can put new ones out.

Rosetta works great with multi-core machines.

I am using 4, 8, 12, 32 and 64 cores and all are getting work.

Maybe I need to switch to Rosetta on the CPUs and FaH on the GPUs.

As noted above, I don't think my FaH output would take much of a hit if I didn't put the CPUs towards it.
