In the market for some insane bandwidth? According to reports, Intel are readying their dual processor Nehalem-EP platform for release in around a month. The Nehalem-EP platform will retain the LGA1366 socket as Core i7, dual CPU support, but two QPI links per chip - one to talk to the Tylersburg chipset and the other for high speed communication with the second processor.
Unlike Skulltrail, Nehalem-EP is not limited by the need for expensive, hot, high latency FB-DIMMs. Instead Gainestown , with a memory controller like the Core i7, supports non-ECC high-speed desktop DIMMs.
