I can't wait for a Phenom II x6 part, but this can do. Or, if you can put two hex-core Opterons together and get something that rivals Skulltrail, but without the oppressive pricing (the two procs+mobo cost $3700 US). Get to work on it, AMD!

And also, future Opteron chips come with 8, 12 (Magny-Cours) and even 16 (Interlagos) cores. I hope developers work on multi-core optimizing so that the Interlagos would be useful.

O goodie, I'm thinking of assembling a new machine after x-mas!  I was looking forward to an AMD alternative and this one looks mighty promising to play with!
