Dear Ambercommunity,
    We recently obtained an access to cluster and want to install our
    AMBER8 there. But system administator doesn't want to install
    AMBER on parallel queue. He told me that the improvement in the
    speed of calculations will be only about 5-10%, because the nodes
    in this cluster are connected by Gigabit network and this limits
    the performance of AMBER. I would like to khow whether this is true.
    Any opinions on this subject would be helpfull.

With many thanks in advance,
