Depends on the CPU. Also, why not run it on the GPU?

Has anybody else heard rumors of Thailand looking real hard at polywell in the past few months at Ongkharak Nuclear Research Centre.

Up up and away
The short-term goal for IEC development is to
promote the IEC thruster concept to TRL3 by the end of
2019. Several verification processes are required to
achieve this goal, such verification of IEC operation
characteristics, extracted plasma properties, and thrust
performance. Currently, tank 12 vacuum system is
prepared for testing of 1kW-scale EP device.

Interesting read.

Is it me, or does this design seem to be about where Dr. Bussard was about 15 to 20 years ago?

Thailand has decided to go with china and a tokamak, partly because a lack of support from our government for polywell.
China donates its HT-6M tokamak to Thailand, fuelling China-Thai fusion exploration

at least our side is starting to wake up about fusion
At the behest of the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine released a plan in December 2018 for advancing fusion research whether or not the U.S. continues its participation in ITER. Although the report encourages continued U.S. participation in ITER, it also advocates for the creation of a national research program that can draw on ITER discoveries while ensuring that the U.S. can remain competitive in the energy landscape of the future.

Interesting. In all my years of lurking on this site, I've never looked at the Wikipedia article. If I wanted to stay informed regarding fusion efforts (especially EMC2), I always visited, well . . . here! Thanks for the link below!
