I'd run all my applications at once, just to see if I could.

Of course, I'd also need plenty of memory, too.

Probably next to nothing. My computer already barely uses the horsepower that it has. Sad, but true fact.

Hi all
Actually you would probably be disappointed -- as the number of cores increases so does the OS overhead required in managing them all -- you won't get ANYTHING like 48 X the power of 1 Core.

Maybe 48 cores cooled with liquid nitrogen and you might get 20fps.
