revealed a few more details of their upcoming quad-core platform
architecture called 4X4. With CPU bundles affectionately dubbed 'Quad
Father,' AMD is taking advantage of the inherent benefits of their
HyperTransport interconnect technology to directly connect a pair of dual Athlon
64 desktop chips together with system memory. Details here show
a dual socket motherboard that support a whopping 12 SATA connections, four
X16 PCI Express slots (x16,x8,x16,x8 configuration) and few other bells and
whistles. Supposedly Quad Father kits will come with matched CPUs from
2.6GHz up to 3GHz."
I judge a religion as being good or bad based on whether its adherents
become better people as a result of practicing it.
