Nice, nice board....

We've still got them going through the stability qualification, so
i havent got to run many benchmarks yet. The interleaved DDR is
working nicely though:

Function      Rate (MB/s)   RMS time     Min time     Max time
Copy:        1219.0476       0.4280       0.4200       0.4400
Scale:       1190.6977       0.4330       0.4300       0.4400
Add:         1422.2222       0.5420       0.5400       0.5500
Triad:       1422.2222       0.5460       0.5400       0.5500


We're currently working with one of our chassis designers to
redesign the cooling for one of these things in a 1U. Who would
have ever dreamed dual Xeons in a 1U?!

Feb 27 15:22:30 localhost kernel: Total of 4 processors activated
(14365.49 BogoMIPS).

how cool!


Unless Intel continues to hold us up, we expect to start shipping these
in a week or so.
