I don't think that your 32 cores could fly along and commit memory across a number of 2M (or 4K) pages and then hope that your hardware could say -oopsies that memory has already been invalidated, so ABORT the BEGIN transaction. Its good to look at what the original uses were and the history https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transactional_memory.
