Hmm, thought you could do this already as the chips exists and as that page says someone did it with a mac pro when the quad core xeons first came out.
Still alot of processing power in one box there!

edit - aha a quote from the designer
Quote:
The system was the brainchild of Francois Piednoel, an engineer with Intel's benchmarking team. He wanted to show how simple it was to make an 8-core workstation with regular parts. "We're not marketing it, but if you want it and need it, it's available."
seems i was correct as the 5300 (clovertown) series xeons are dual socket caperble quad core cpu's

lloks like the MAC board inverted, with straight DIMMs instead of the mounting PCB's for the fb-DIMMS. hardly anything special. You want that power, adn many pci-e slots? just simply buy a MacPro.

You mean...like ....make the software and the hardware "fit" and run together with wasting resources?

Now there's an idea they should see in Redmond and New Deli! ":O}
