Building an audio recording computer. Is there a way to get dual quad core xeon cpu's with hyperthreading?

I have audio recording software (Cubase) that can take advantage of multiple CPU core processing. I'd like to know if I can find a dual socket motherboard that will utilize two (2) quad core XEON processors capable of hyperthreading? I believe that would give me 16 theoretical cores of processing. Is this possible or even feasible?
Thanks

  2. Yes, it's possible. It'll be very expensive, though, and I'm really not sure you need it - why do you feel like you need that much heft?
  3. The above one supports upto 4 CPU, but supports less RAM.

    You might check this one too: http://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-X8DAH-F-Motherboard-dual-core/dp/B002DQAV80

    But these kind of boards are for server purpose, not for Desktop use.

    I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for to be honest. Audio processing seems to be difficult to get glitch free results with anything short of a supercomputer. I just figured dual quad core CPUs that were capable of hyperthreading would have to be more than adequate given the appropriate drives, memory, etc. Thanks much for your reply. 4 CPUs may be a bit of an overkill especially for my wallet!

  7. ultimeter, actually you don't need a Supermicro kind of server motherboard.

    Asus Maximus VI Hero with i7 processor and 32GB RAM, SSD(500GB+) will work best for your work.

    Have you ever thought having 32GB RAM and a higher volume SSD for your work?

    SSD will do the work faster for you.
