Default AMD Demonstrates 4x4 Enthusiast System

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.

A bit more info form Tech Report

Quote:
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.
