* Intel releases the Beasts

Ars Technica's got word that Intel is releasing 64-bit Quad Xeon rigs - that's right, FOUR 64-bit Xeon processors on one motherboard.

The E8500 chipset sports a number of nice features that will complement the updated MPs very well. The new chipset gives the MP an FSB speed boost to 667MHz, which, along with DDR2 support, will be necessary to keep the four CPUs fed as the number of cores per die grows (see below). On the I/O side, the E8500 brings PCIe support to the quad Xeon. Finally, Intel's Demand Based Switching and Enhanced Speedstep Technology are both intended to help address increasingly important power consumption and related fan noise issues.
That's a lot of processing power just to play Doom 3 with (kidding, kidding!).
