I am speccing out a Dual Opteron 265 system. The system will run Windows XP Pro, and my question is: Does XP-Pro even support 4 cores? I know it will run dual cpus, and thus dual opteron, or one X2 (two cores), but will it run a total of four cores. More specifically, even if it runs, will it detect/use them?
Even if it does run on WinXP pro, but how many application will benefit from it?
