AMD Demonstrates 4x4 Enthusiast System

@ 2006/07/25
This morning, the home office of AMD demonstrated a 4x4 enthusiast system, affectionately referred to as the “Quad Father”, running a variety of different multi-threaded applications. Among the demonstrations given, Half Life 2 was run while playing MP3 audio and MPEG4 video running in the background.

We also learned yesterday that the 4x4 platform will include two DIMMs slots associated with each processor, just like an Opteron system. That should give 4x4 four channels of high-speed DDR2 memory, or twice the effective memory bandwidth of a single-socket Athlon 64 system, with the qualification that 4x4 systems will require four DIMMS for optimal performance and follow a non-uniform memory access model, also just like an Opteron system.
