I already guessed something like that, although you could go from -127 to
128 I think -20 to 20 were to be considered the outer limits of real-life
situations. (I guess a process running at -100 will still get whetever CPU
is free, but a program running at 100 is likely to take over your
computer...) Hmm, I really should get my A4000 back up and running,
although the keyrates won't be impressive I think... any numbers available ?
