I noticed this page at Tyanhttp://www.tyan.com/support/ht...thlo...on_opteron.html
Some of the Opteron motherboards don't support 246 (or even 244) Opterons.
Is this true for other vendors too?
Why is this?
I was considering a lower cost M/B, and 240's in the near term, until I noticed some of the boards had a limited upgrade ceiling. I'd like to imagine upgrading to a 248 next year, when, I hope, prices come down, but I'm less sure this will work.
I think it would be helpful to clarify so that people don't expect too much (or too little) futire proofing.
