Opteron Dually Mobos...Drool

Tech Report reviews 3 pretty sweet looking dual Opteron mobos.

I coud definitely do some serious number crunching with any of these motherboards. When it comes to working with large datasets, I'll bet the Tyan Thunder with a suitable NUMA-aware OS and over 9 GB/s memory bandwidth would run circles around most other workstations out there.

I need one for my next computer...Let's go shopping on Pricewatch
