Nah actually it puts out 10W more than my current 2.2GHz opteron dual core :lol: progress kicks ass lmao.

proc arrived today. 8x2.0GHz thing is heavy as crap



Load that bitch up with 4gb memory sticks. You can have a GB of ram for every bit of the operating system :lol:
Yeah, planning on 2x4GB right now for dual channel and I can upgrade to 4x4GB for quad channel :hbang:

Not to be a buzzkill, but I dont think OS/2 is going to be able to address anywhere near that amount of memory or storage space jeff.

Give it a few months and there will be a version of that CPU with 3.0ghz per core. Everyone hates it when that happens. That's why I personally buy away from the bleeding edge, I don't like the inevitable so I get the best value/performance. I can't handle seeing the new one haha.

What are you going to do with this beast? I guess it's up for anything and everything.

^yeah pretty much a whatever box, regular desktop, vm server, etc. I bought my current rig after it was out for quite a while because there was promised quad-core support which was never delivered. This time I decided to get something that is what I want from the beginning.
