800 series pretty pricey. Will they make any difference. What about quad processors?? Of any value for LW??

Is there going to be a 64 bit VT??

Thanks

800s are the same as 200s performance wise, but have more Hypertransport links to interface with more processors.

I guess 200s, especially with a dual core, should be suffient for LW. Since only the rendering is multi-threaded anyhow, you'd probably get more bang for the buck by buying a couple of renderfarm boxes.

Cheers,
