Dual Quad Core - Possible?

Last response: in CPUs

I just found this word " Dual Quad Core"
When i check the Processor in Intel Site, It says it is 4 cores and 4 threads.

Is that possible to make Dual Quad Core? Will it then have 8 cores and 8 threads?


More about : dual quad core

There's such a thing as 4 cores and 8 threads, due to hyperthreading. I've never seen the term "dual quad core" though. I'm guessing it relates to a setup with 2 processors, both being quad cores.

Is that possible? My friend said this, i didn't see it. I asked him to search for webhosting who provide quad core.

Yes sort of. The only board I know of to support this is the Intel Skulltrail and I'm pretty sure they've been discontinued. So unless you can find an old skull trail you can't really do it

Thanks for the info.

I'm sure there are some work station boards out there that support two CPUs. Its more or less a waste however. A single home user would be hard pressed to max out a 2500 or 2600. Webhosting would never need that kind of power. (amazon or other such place not included.)

Why do you say webhosting never need that kind of power?
Orkut, Facebook, Google+ i guess they must be using more than this.

The big guys use racks. And even then its often not just webhosting, but running your buying software as well. Personal use would never be that high.

2 xeons that have 4c/4t then you would have dual quad cores

My desktop machine is dual quad core - 2 x Opteron 8389, I do a lot of virtual machine stuff so more cores are very useful. It's based on a XW9400 motherboard.
I also have a DL585 G5, which is quad quad core - 4 x Opteron 8356.

If they made a lga2011 version of this board I would seriously consider it for when ivy-E comes out. Though I suppose that would be dual hexa core or dual octa core :) 

That looks cool but I can't see any real use for it unless your doing alot of CPU intensive work or running a server.

No way man, farmville runs AWESOME on that board I bet!!

Try having 8 10 core xeons and up to 256gb of ram in a high end server :o 

They do exist but cost a lot more than most are willing to afford.
