Currently there are no dual CPU mobo's for the Athlon. Last week in San
Jose , AMD has it's first public demonstration of a multiprocessor computer
designed specifically to work with AMD processors.
Although AMD is being tight lipped about this mobo, it looks to be made by a
company called "Iwill " an OEM mobo manufacturer. Tyan is also working on
a board code named "Lions"... a pretty slick board with dual NIC's,
integrated dual 160Mb SCSI.
Timing on the release of this mobo is veiled in secrecy... looks like late
Q4/ early Q1 2001.
