Yes it's a different problem. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

It depends on the CPU. Older ones had a small number only. On the
newer ones it tends to be limited by the various queues to memory,
which are a shared resource (so it also depends on what the other
threads/cores are doing)

I normally assume as a rule of thumb < 50
