"In theory, there are 8S AMD systems, but the scalability suffers because most processors only have 3 HyperTransport links. "

I'm not an AMD fanboy, but really this goes too far.

You realize it's start 2010 and you write about a cheap solution that's there for many years now total unrivalled i price by intel: "in theory".

In theory that tells you everything about this forum.
