    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
