really excited to see some upcoming changes to linux scheduling, where more work gets scheduled on fewer cores. power down a bunch of cores, leave a couple cores more packed, but throttled up.
the one gotcha here is that latency for some tasks will go up a little. one of my favorite windows hacks has always been to isolate busy/noisy processes onto a couple cores, and perhaps moving other processes & especially processes i want good interactivity on to anti-affinity for those cores.
