Hi everybody,

As you may be aware of, Intel has reduced the price of its Quad CPUs,
dramatically.

Does anyone have any experience using Intel Quad-Core CPUs in a Beowulf
Cluster?

Do you prefer these ones over AMD Opteron?

Essentially, are Intel Quad CPUs having really FOUR cores? Are they really
64-bit processors, as Opterons are?

Thanks for any comment on each of my questions.

Wishes,
rmb
