    Quad-code boxes or chips? (can you even get quad-core AMD chips?)

    Anyhow, that graph is super.

    yeah…the old boxes were dual CPU, and the new ones are dual quad CPUs. 🙂

    Not only more performance per machine, but fewer parts to fail, fewer warranties and licenses to pay for, fewer OSes to patch, etc. Very cool.

    Could you confirm that you have dual quad-core CPUs inside your HP DL145 G3 servers? Which CPU model of quad-core CPUs do you have? Did you need a BIOS hack to get that to work with quad-core CPUs? Some of us with DL145 G3 servers haven not been able to get dual quad-core CPUs to boot with the latest BIOS in place for the DL145 G3 servers. Thanks.
