"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."
