Hello,

I am planning an upgrade to a dual opteron system and had selected a pair of Opteron 246 HE for a socket 940 system. I then heard about 'Pacifica' extentions to support Xen virtualisation and decided to wait for that.

Looking at the AMD website I can only see AMD-V for the 'next generation' Opterons... is pacifica technology going to be deployed on socket 940 Opterons or only for socket AM2 & F?

It is a little disappointing you cannot get the pacifica extentions on socket 940... I shouldn't really be surprised though; big hook to catalyse rapid adoption of new socket /dry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="<_<" border="0" alt="dry.gif" />
