If I have 16 cores, things are still really loud but I start to not be able to tell the difference. The percentage of improvement is much lower.

E.g, 16 cores works and PostgreSQL work great, but it is not nearly as fantastic with 16 cores as 8 cores (in terms percentage gain).

That's not the same thing as slowing down, it just means that scaling isn't always linear, which isn't surprising.

Right. Which is why I reposted, but it also makes what Simon proposes that much more attractive *because* it helps the linear problem (in theory).
