SuperMicro 24 core motherboard

Speaking of 24 core motherboards with loads of RAM, I ran across this new SuperMicro motherboard the other day when doing some research. It's truly terrifying how many cores and RAM you can toss onto one box now.

Assuming one core is dedicated to a Dom0, you could have 23 VMs each with a dedicated core and over 8GB or RAM if you add all 192GB of RAM.

Here are some specs from the link above:
  1. Quad Intel® 64-bit Xeon® MP Support 1066 MHz FSB
  2. Intel® 7300 (Clarksboro) Chipset
  3. Up to 192GB DDR2 ECC FB-DIMM (Fully Buffered DIMM)
  4. Intel® 82575EB Dual-port Gigabit Ethernet Controller
  5. LSI 1068e Dual Channel 8-Port SAS Controller
  6. 6x SATA (3 Gbps) Ports via ESB2 Controller
  7. 1 (x8) PCI-e (using X16 slot), 1 (x8) PCI-e (using x8 slot) & 1 (x4) PCI-e (using x8 slot) 1x 64-bit 133MHz PCI-X
  8. ATI ES1000 Graphics with 32MB video memory
  9. IPMI 2.0 (SIMSO) Slot
