i may be wrong but as far as i know you really would be dreaming if you want a MP system with Conroe/Kensington Processors. Intel will not include MP support on their desktop processors. the MP machine you may remember Tyan advertising as having Conroe processors used clustering. the only way to use multiple processors from Intel will be to use Xeons.

let's see.. an AMD 4X4 system, with four of AMD's top quad core processors once they come out..

I'd say 4GB RAM (1GB stick per quad core chip.. or 2 x 512's per chip if they support dual channel individually) - I'm not going to use more than that now... and more would slow it down probabbly

and also, 2 x X2800 XTX's in crossfire when they come out

oh, and a fibre optic internet connection

you know, I'd most likely end up running about 12 instances of folding@home on it at once, and leave 4 of the cores for other stuff... I'd still have extreme multitasking WHILE being an insane folding@home contributor

sorry i'm not sure where this stuff about Kensington came from as i can't seem to find any substantial information about it, i have no idea what i was on about

been through a lot of Intel press releases just a moment ago to try and catch up

Clovertown=2 way Xeon quad core
Tigerton=MP Xeon quad core

those are the Core 2 Quad processors that will be required for multi-processor systems.

Kentsfield is a desktop one-way processor and will not be able to be used in multi-processor systems. i repeat will not be able to be used in multi-processor systems. that is why you've never seen a dual P4 system, they can't be made.
