You mean boards like this one, that have been on the market for years?


Note that it takes Opteron 2xx-series CPUs.

Also note that the the AMD "4x4" architecture you're referring to uses
the *expensive* ($ 1000 US) FX-series CPUs... if you're not gonna do SLI
a dual Opteron setup will actually be *cheaper*, even with taking into
account the Opteron's requirement for registered ECC DDR.
