um hi, it will work... just not sure how well.. and the difference in features like split path way thing for memory.. but isnt that what dual cpus for amd always do anyways.. split memory to each cpu.. right the manuals says you have too in order to get 2 cpus to work,,,,,
a source that might help.. yay it should work.. question is at what a loss compared to the phenom that will come out for it??????????
leading me to find a good decent sli board that is read for barcelona.. i dont need backplanes or anything fancy like scsi or sas.. sata raid works like a charm.. and the option of 12 was nice.. but i can settle for 6+2 or 4+2 depending on board, think i was looking at a nice tyan... but then saw this nice asus server board with sli.. course no bios updates for sept.. meaning most likely not a nice board for barcelona...
case point do the research find the board on manu. site.. and check the bios revision date.. that will help... helps me a little..
sure would be nice just to have an all out ati amd server system.. but nvidia makes the only current chipset supporting barcelona what a bummer big bummer.....
which means ati is just a shadow.. working of poppas crumbs..
that 2900 sure is pretty.. and sure does compete.. and sure makes me want one..
but the feature of turning on sli on a board with nvidia and having it work flawlessly points me to a server board with 2 8800 somethings.. nothing less... and plenty of afk gaming on mmorpgs.. that allow such
without hindering the terminals running on virtual servers.. ya its so fun..
its the only way they can keep me at work to have the "computer guy" answer phones for the "oil guy" hence its only a side job.. but i help out when more hands are needed... but theres alot of time that normally i like to play the market in game.. or shoot things in game..
trying this on a single core server.. does not work very well.. it makes the employeess go "hey is there a reason why my station slowed down>?> are you doing something i can wait " bla bla bla... i think barcelona and about 8-12 gigs of ram should cure that.. bundled with a nice top of the line video card o ya
