It ain't exactly cheap . Whole new platform: G34 socket, quad-channel DDR3, etc etc. But still, very nice procs, although if I'm not mistakne the 6000-series is for multi-sockets whereas the 4000-series will be for single or dual socket applications.

The procs themselves are huge too!

Apparently G34 is has 1944 pins/pads! Sweet Jesus!
