Default AMD don't care if one die goes awry

A SITE appears to be suggesting that IBM has quietly released its Blade Center Model 65X which will take 14 dual core processors per chassis.
Have a decko, here.

Meanwhile, at this site, a journalist has sat down with tech guy Fred Weber from AMD, who reckons it won't matter too much if one core goes AWOL when there's four dies in a package.

That, he patiently explains, is called redundancy. µ

http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=24849

High density: Up to 14 AMD Opteron LS20 for BladeCenter Model 65x blade servers can be installed in a new BladeCenter chassis (8677-3XX). Also, they may be installed in an existing BladeCenter chassis (8677-1XX or 8677-2XX) at full density after an upgrade with the new 2,000-watt power supply option (26K4816). In addition, up to eight of these new LS20 blade servers may be installed in the BladeCenter T chassis (8720-1RX and 8730-1RX) with appropriate firmware.

Powerful blade-thin computing: The BladeCenter chassis and AMD Opteron LS20 for BladeCenter blade servers are the key components to building your blade configuration. Optionally available Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and InfiniBand switches and adapters, redundant keyboard video mouse (KVM) management, and power modules support advanced configurations.

Some of you may be thinking/asking -

1) 14 water blocks?
2) What is the size of the radiator?
3) How about the pump?

Don't worry, it is kept in a meat-locker.
