    Great for servers I guess. Would be interesting to see some games that uses more than 4 cores though.

    'Enhanced security features' - could this be what they bought McAffee for?

    I can see it now: you drop a few of these into your servers, call Microsoft to authorise the hardware change then BAM the processor breaks your Windows server install for running 'malicious files'. And just to be extra secure, the chips short themselves so no one can even see what got into the cache, let alone use them.

    No, they use the LGA1567 socket, not the 1366 the SR-2 has

    interesting; how necessary would this be for gaming though? it would be pretty cool to see this as mainstream cpus .. but tbh it seems like it's a pretty small niche ..

    Battlefield BC2 uses my 4 cores of my Q6600... he's always at 60% or more to play the game at 1920x1200 all maxxed... There are some games, not many though...

    Anyone commenting about gaming possibilities belong in a different hole on the interwebs... Gaming, even desktop applications, were not even considered in the design of this chip - anyone with two living brain cells should be able to figure that one out.

    I think it may be something to do with the size of the overall processor. Let's not forget, AMD's 12 core is the size of 2 processors stuck together which basically what it is. Intel look to have shrunk everything down but until its down to 22nm then maybe this is the limit on a normal sized processor?
