"Compute power on the local lattice" is a resource provided by co-processors, Wrist calc.pngwrist calcs, or Palladium electrodeposits.pngpalladium electrodeposits that enhances the performance of other equipment that can benefit from computing resources being placed at its disposal. Items that benefit from compute power are:

In most cases, each unit of compute power will adjust the affected numerical parameter by 1% of base value. Variations in compute power generally do not alter rules text; for example, numbers shown in the descriptions of a Communications interlock.pngcommunications interlock or Penetrating radar.pngpenetrating radar will not change with your compute power, but the actual performance of the device will.
