I wonder if what I am seeing here is normal?

Insert an Elephant, slap it into 5.1 mode.

Project is a 24/96 one.

System is a Q6700 2.66MHz x4 Quad Core CPU.

The CPU usage immediately shoots to 100% and is unusable.

Is this normal? and if so - what type of monster CPU would be needed?

Yes, this is normal for sure.  No current generation processors are able to provide enough performance for this mode, because it requires high performance from a single core.

This is something that I have always wondered about:

How much oversampling is useful when recording/mixing at 96kHz?

Is it necessary or helping at all or does it just kill CPU at that rate?

Should I go with 2X oversampling (at least at the final rendering stage)

or what would you recommend?

(Sorry, I notice this goes beyond Elephant and concerns all the wonderful Voxengo effects with oversampling feature...)

"There's a certain detail seen here."

I think that at 96kHz, 2x oversampling is enough for most uses.

I have it set to Auto, and that seems to drastically reduce the CPU usage.

Still - why can this even be set if there is no CPU powerful enough to actually do it?

Would it work in a non real time export?

I do not see a reason not to include it, because at 44.1kHz stereo it can work.

Yes, it will work in bouncing mode.
