    Re: 8-Core Xeon MP SuperServers

    12 cores @ 1.7GHz, on a 45nm process, within a 65W TDP?!?!?!

    So where's the consumer 45w hexacore then?

    For Nehalem EX based servers? Try more like £15K for one with CPU's, RAM etc.
    You don't buy one of these unless you plan on using lots of RAM.
