2x Intel Xeon 2.3GHz 8-Core 16 threads ES (fixed at 2.5GHz no Turbo)
MB ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS
2x Sandisk Extreme SSD 240GB
2xcorsair GT 120GB for scratchdisk and caches
Windows 7 64-bit
few software take advantage of 32 threads
PS6, LR4, only use about 11 threads include PS6 video rendering,
except for PS6 surface blur and radial blur use 32 threads. Keith Simonian Radial Blur Speed Test
I can't find any other tool in PS6 take advantage of more than 11 threads, if you want me to check a tool or filter in PS6 I'll be glad to help out.
my only advice is anything more than a hexa-core Intel processor is useless for photo editing.
