Just beggin' for a couple 5970's.
First board is perfect for all my VMs ha ha.
It'll happen in a year's time. And yes, I also wondered what type of aftermarket cooling solutions manufacturers are going to come up with. They'll probably just make a larger base.
heatsink like Ultra 120 already have pretty big and wide base. i bet they will work just fine with it
that suprisingly looks like a socket 939 mount maybe you have to dig up your old coolers,eh?
8 über fast 1.5GHz cores.
even if it is going to be lower clocked cpu, don't forget that it is going to be brand new architecture.
I'll take it
Four of 6128 (which run at 2Ghz BTW) + a board might come out under $2K if boards prices stay low. (current 4P boards are pretty cheap compared to a couple generations ago, $650-850)
32 cores to crunch with!
Would it be possible to just put one CPU on the 4P board, and then add more later on?
^ Maybe. The manual isn't out for the one I posted above, but the board Supermicro released for the 6-core Opterons last year had two SR5690 chips. One connected to the southbridge, some PCIe slots, while the other handled the rest of the PCIe slots. It only mentions that you need at least two CPU's to have full functionality. I'm reading that as you could have 1, but you wouldn't be able to use any slots or onboard devices that relied on the second CPU being there.
