x86 architecture?  Others?

In x86:  8 sockets is possible from a few vendors.  16 and 32 are not 
yest as single machines.

If you don't mind using the ScaleMP software layer you can get up to 32 
sockets in an intel flavor.  There are AMD flavor versions from other 
providers that will work as well if you prefer AMD chips.

Let me know if you want more info.  I don't want to spam the list.
