Four way Merced: the pix

It's a great big lumbering beast

Intel Developer Forum Intel was exhibiting a two way and a four way system in its Showspace area. The four-way box is upgradeable to eight ways, and uses the AL460GX chipset, and supports up to 64Gb of memory. It also includes hotswap fans and HotPCI drives. (Memory type corrected -- we didn't mean 64GHz :|) We had exclusive pictures of the Merced cartridges in March. Go here to view them. Here are some pictures of this beastie. This shows the front of the four-way with the case removed, and the hot swap fans... This shot shows the 64-bit PCI slots in the machine. This last picture shows the outside of the four way case plus a bit of the workstation two way machine, which uses the BS460GX chipset... Would you run games on these monsters? ®
