Are their quad motherboards for the MP out yet and when does the 3000+mp come out?

I've never seen Socket A/Athlon MP boards for more than two processors

It is very unlikely that there will be another, faster Athlon MP model.
The Opteron-line can do everything an Athlon MP can do (and much more) and provides a much more advanced and future-proof platform(Socket 940).

Most likely, the Athlon MP line will be discontinued in favor of the Opteron sooner or later.

In the 2nd half of 2005, AMD will release dual-core Opteron processors which will be compatible with today's Socket 940 motherboards.
While it will still be awhile until those parts become available, using two dual-core Opterons on a dual Socket 940 motherboard would provide you with a lot more processing power than a (theoretical) quad-Athlon MP system could ever deliver....also, today's dual Opteron systems will easily outperform any dual Athlon MP solution.
