They do make pretty affordable Opteron 4000 series chips which use the same bulldozer and Piledriver architecture and support multiple sockets. Those use a C32 socket, though. http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/SERVER/PROCESSORS/4000-S... And yes if you bought two 8 core opteron, then the system would just show 16 cores. They have up to 16 core opterons and I have a few servers with dual 16 core and the OS shows 32 processor cores. | Report abuse Reply to twelve25 Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Dual AM3+ CPU Board> Related ressources: ForumAnybody used AM3 CPU on AM2 board successfully ?
