The Inquirer feels that while the Nehalem processor is impressive, we haven’t really seen what it is capable of.  We will need to see some new motherboards to handle the amount of bandwidth available from the processor, especially if you want to use more than one in your system.  Of course, those who have tried to set up dual processor systems in the past may have something to say about how feasible this is for a gaming rig, especially if you are planning on overclocking.

“MANY SITES ALL OVER THE WEB, including The INQ, have celebrated Intel’s new DP offering, the Gainestown Xeon 5500 Nehalem. Combining the best of the workstation and server multiprocessor, memory and I/O scaling – after all, it could feed four dual- GPU PCIe x16 cards at full bandwidth with two north bridges – and the low memory latency and common high-end cooling desktop compatibility, the beast seemingly gives you the best of both worlds. Whether you want top game frame rates, high server TPC ratings, or top supercomputing app performance, the new dualie gives it all.”
