Wow, not five minutes after posting, here I am replying to my own message.
Apperently Intel makes a Xeon called "Xeon MP" that will support 4-way
smp.  The Xeon MP also has a L3 cache sized between 512KB-2MB.  But
according to Intel's website it is only available in speeds up to 2ghz.
So I don't know how current a product it is, I had never heard of it until
tonight!  But what I said about the normal Xeons is true, they only
support 2-way Smp.
