we do need to decide on a terminology here.

I recently did a response to a tender for a prospective customer.
I was tying myself in knots getting the correct terminology,
for questions such as "the systems MUST have xxx gigabytes of RAM per
processor"
I went with reading that as 'per socket' in the case of dual cores.
Also talking about 'dual nodes' is going to be more tricky.
