So I'm going to be in the process of building a workstation computer. I currently have (2) AMD Opteron 8384 Shanghai quad core processors.
Now, after doing some research, I read that there's 2 versions of the Shanghai processor, an 8384 and 2384. The 8384 is for 4 processor motherboards and the 2384 is for 2 processor motherboards. I have not yet confirmed that an 8384 can work on a 2 processor motherboard, is this possible? I found some motherboards on newegg.com but not all of them explicitly say if its for 8384 or 2384. Or is it possible to get a 4 processor motherboard using only 2 processors?
