X7560 and QPI

I have just watched the Intel Parallel video with Mike describing that the MTL uses the X7560 Nehalem as a platform. I had a look online and discovered that a motherboard can use up to 256 of these chips on 1 motherboard.

Could you tell us how many of these X7650s you have on a motherboard for the MTL Mike. Also, what sort of motherboard are you using?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

The MTL system (and motherboard)that we are using only has 4 sockets.

Here's a link to the OEM (QSSC)rackmount 4U server specs: http://www.qsscit.com/en/01_product/02_detail.php?mid=27&sid=125&id=126&qs=50

Also here's a link to a video we put together as we built one of these systems: http://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2010/05/14/parallel-programming-ta...
