The Inq's Opteron pic

— 12:05 AM on May 22, 2002

This one picture is worthy of a news post all by itself. Have a look at this picture of a dually AMD Opteron system, which comes from Mike Magee's new house, The Inquirer. Note the two banks of DIMM sockets, necessary because each Opteron has its own memory controller. (Talk about creamy SMP smoothness....) Also, you can clearly see the traces for the HyperTransport links from CPU to CPU and over to the PCI slots (or is it PCI-X slots?).

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
