    CD! how does this preform to say a 775 quad or a 1366 quad in performance? 16 cores should have the advantage but im thinking the older hardware would slow it down alittle? are you crunching that rig?

    in folding i'd say it should kick ass, for gaming not so much.

    dont forget that every CPU has its own memory controller, thats a lot of added bandwidth - even if its on old, slow ram

    it will be soon right now i am still playing with os's it does perform pretty well 2.93ghz 8c/16t i7 still beats it but in heavily multithreaded stuff it still holds its own.

    dont forget about numa!

    So how much does it cost, compared to a common i7 setup?

    From what I've seen at XS you can get a setup with 4 quad-core Opterons for about $800 or so.

    Oh wow, that's insane! I take it the board is by far the most expensive part?
    I'd estimate ~1-1.3k PPD per quad, so 4-5.4k for them all. Or, regrettably, less than a SB i7 @ ~4ghz

    Hi all. Long time no post for me so I thought I would throw in a pic of the i7 rig. I just finished re routing tubes and I am happy with the temps now. Never mind the dust ;)
