    I wonder how eight cores sharing that memory interface will hold up.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    What ESX was built for!

    God I want one (or 2) of these, just think what you could do with 2 of these and 64GB of RAM.

    A hell of a lot faster than if they'd been communicating over FSB! The memory bandwidth for the triple channel IMC is huge and should be no bottleneck at all.

    much sooner than I was expecting in the current climate

    is this a "true" 8-core, or is it two quads slapped together on one die, with the associated heat badness?

    How long before we start seing these in the purple shirt place with signs say "Octo-Core Do-More", and the noobs telling you you need 8 cores to run music internet and email at the same time.

    Well the fact that Vistas defualt option uses 1 core only which is stupid so even people with dual and qaud cores arnt using them, i relise is mostly down to the HDD but still.
