If you use a dual-athlon for one job, you'll get nearly the same performance
as two one-node athlons. So a dual athlon is the best best. Meanwhile amber
suffers from lack of scaling in this configuration.
If you use each processor of the dual node separately, you get roughly what
you want (one hundred percent of one processor for each job).
