For several reason, I'm thinking to update the mobo of my folding Silverstone Raven, and for the first time I'm looking at CPU folding too.
So I'm wondering if there's anything similar to this dual AMD ASUS KCMA-D8
, I mean dual socket/dual PCIE 8x slots, but for the Intel architecture, in order to exploit the higher efficiency of Santa Clara's products (and eventually justify the enormous cooling power of my ugly Raven: however, the expected power consumption of the AMD system should be under 400W).
Price should be - obviously? - similar (currently around 930 USD shipped for that mobo and two Opteron 4180, six cores@2,6GHz each), while the estimated PPD should be in excess of 62,000 PPD (Linux, A5).
