Well it should be interesting. I suspect we’re near the end of single core performance increases of any dramatic degree. So we should be thinking of ways to make good use of many-core systems for Squeak.

Note that on a good modern x86 desktop you can anticipate something like 3B bytecodes/sec and 200M sends/sec - and at that level it probably makes the benchmark even less meaningful.
