"The system we reviewed was equipped with two 12-core AMD 6176
SE processors. It is upgradeable to the new 16-core Interlagos
chips (scheduled to be available in volume in Q4 2011). Other
system specs included are 128 GB of DDR3 memory, a Smart Array disk
controller with 1 GB of Flash Backed Write Cache (FBWC) and eight
600 GB SAS Hard Disks (see Figure 1). The total estimated MSRP for
this configuration is $17,784. While that might sound a little
pricey, it is cost competitive when you consider it could easily
replace up to 32 physical machines."
