The chipset which is as yet unannounced will include two x16 and two x8 PCI-e slots, and AMD was showing off a 4x4 system in its suite.
The board that was in a machine here was an Asustek board and the computer was running two game windows, each playing a high definition video, encoding a high definition video and streaming a gameplay video through Internet Exploder.
The system was maxed out but the game windows - City of Heroes - were running smoothly. There will be several SKUs of the 4x4 at launch, with all but one being under $1000. Another focus of AMD is that the 4x4 platform is quad-core ready, allowing easy upgrade with the introduction of the quad core in 2007. µ
