Re: Intel Xeon Phi

As it's x86 chips, I'd love to plug it in and just see them in taskmanager... And then just say "run more threads" to your favourite rendering app of choice to spread over to there.

Re: offline

I could back it up to my home server. I just am no linux user, not having a clue about it.
