I'm not sure what your definition of commodity is, then -- by mid-1st
quarter there will be 3 2-socket and 2 4-socket Opteron motherboards
with HTX slots available, from commodity motherboard vendors, with an
extremely modest price premium. Heck, since Myricom has announced that
they're working on an HT attached NIC, we figured you were going to
target HTX...
