First AMD 4×4 Mobo Spotted

Intel may be getting all the attention with its quad core and Core 2 Duo blitzkrieg, but AMD’s not one to rest on its laurels. Its forthcoming 4×4 platform will place two dual-core CPUs on one mobo for a total of four cores. Asus’ L1N64-SLI WS will be the first mobo to support the 4×4 architecture and this here is an overview of what you can expect. It’ll have 4 memory slots (2 memory sticks dedicated for each processor), 12 SATA ports, and 4 PCI Express x16 slots. The two CPUs will be connected via AMD’s Direct Connect architecture. Spec-wise, the board is fully loaded. Our only concern will be pricing, as something with this many features can’t possibly be cheap and could potentially be more expensive than the Intel alternative.
