    Cool HEXUS.bean - Intel Dual Core Extreme Edition

This will probably tie in with a launch of a system from Dell, since Intel have already got a commitment from Dell in regards to supplying it.

    With the optimizations which some companies have already done - hopefully Dual Core should really kick in well

    Something just crossed my mind:

    XP Pro supports 2 CPUs doesn't it? If so, given there'll be dual HT on there, how will it handle 4 "virtual CPUs"?

    XP Pro can run a dual Xeon (which of course can be HT'd) so that is fine - it will run with 4 virtual cores.

    Also Microsoft are going to move on a per socket license rather than per core.

    The most interesting thing is the fact that the P4 Chipsets which are currently out won't support it.

    Will AMD's chipsets share a similar fate? Hopefully not, infact it's looking like they won't.

    Are you sure? I hope your right.

    Skt 939 dual core A64's would be a massive boost for AMD users.

    I can't see too many Intel peeps being happy at having to upgrade chipsets again...

    I'm sure I recall reading about a dual core workstation demonstrated somewhere - and it was using some server/workstation board that was already in production. I cannot remember exactly though, so I can't say for sure.

    As for a chipset upgrade. Anybody buying an Intel Extreme Edition CPU will have enough money for a new motherboard too...

    This may be what you were thinking of Kez...

    Of course there's no guarantee of socket compatibility as the Proliant DL585 has each CPU + RAM on a separate daughterboard...
