4x Quad core

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a mobo with support for 4 quad core processors (16 cores total).

I'd like to build something ridiculously powerful and this seemed the obvious choice but I can't locate any boards like it.

Any info. greatfully recieved.
cheers

As far I know, Intel does not currently support a Quad CPU solution.

What is the purpose of the rig? so much CPU power is only necessary for very specific applications (nope, gaming is not one of them)

Would be used for video editing and multibeam sonar processing most of the time. More cores = faster data processing = more data processed = more money!
As for cost, work would cover that, it would be for their benefit.

Thanks for the info. guys, looks like dual Xeons is the best bet!

I don't believe there are any such boards on the market. The closest thing I can think of is Intel's 'Skulltrail' which supports 2 x Quad CPU's. That will run you an arm and a leg on price, however.... and has little to no benefit compared to a single Quad for most users.

Skulltrail would prob be your best bet. It holds 2 quad core chips. Use that serach function in the top right to look up skull trail. They seem to work very well.

You could get a Quad socket board for Quad-core Xeons...

It looks like you're going to only be able to fit 2 quads on a package currently.

These are some killer servers. Take a look at them.

Get Skulltrail, at least you can get two quad cores. Or if you wait, I'm sure an octo-core will come out with Nehalem.
