I have seen reports that both Intel and IBM are working on chipsets
that will support that. I think the reports were talking many way
SMP but possibly that is because where Itanium is positioned. This
looks like it may be in the McKinley time frame. I have a strange
hunch that McKinley will be bus compatible with the P4. This is what
I am picking up through osmosis reading the reviews.
