The MPs are designed for running in server boards where they can place more than one chip on a board. The MP stands for multiple processor. Unless you're planning to get a mobo with multiple sockets and multiple chips to go with that mobo, you won't really need the MP. Think of the MPs as the old skool Opterons.
