That type of main board has been around many years. The best place to get that information for current systems is from the manufacturer.

If feel the need to know the price of a system with that setup and with enough memory to make two processors worth while, you probably can't afford it.

Even Dells' top end Precision T7500 at $4000 or so is still a single CPU system.

Multi-CPU systems are generally reserved for servers.


The performance of a quad core CPU is better than two Dual core CPUs.

You want to look for two socket workstations. Below are some examples that I know of in the past to support dual cpu's:

HP Z800 Workstation
HP xw9400 Workstation
Lenovo D20
DELL PRECISION T7500

Your best option is to contact each retailer directly and they should advise you what options are available for each model. The website may hide or not display options that the retailer can provide.

Note: The older T7500 supported dual socket intel xeon cpu's, the newer pre-built systems do not have an option for dual cpu listed on dell's website.
