64-Bit Xeon Cometh!

Well, its been promised for a long, long time. After all the hype, the talk, its finally here - on Monday is rolling out an x86 chip with 64-bit extensions with the official launch of the next-generation dual-processor Xeon chip, code-named Nocona.

More here, and here.

Great! Now all I have to do is save up the money for 8 of them and an 8-way Xeon mobo, and then we'll all see who's the fps king!
