How about I/O's use efficiencies ?

From what you are saying, as far as plugin's are concerned, a dual quad is almost twice as capable as a single quad. To the lay person that would seem to make sense. So in other words and hypothetically speaking, if you maxed out your single quad system on 100 Rea-verb plugins - a dual quad system might max at something like 180 Rea-Verb plugins - Correct ?

What happens to these efficiencies when the latencies fall below 128 samples ?
