The Inquirer writes AMD had talks with its motherboards makers about 4x4 motherboards:
If all goes well, the boards and the dual Athlon FX CPUs for ultra high-end gaming will be ready for the Yule shopping madness.

Back at Computex and shortly after the show, none of the motherboard manufacturers would confirm that it had started work on 4x4 boards but some vendors did acknowledge that there were talks about it.

AMD wants to take the gaming crown back and it is using Nvidia's strategy also known as, do what ever it takes to regain the performance leadership.
These 4x4 boards will arrive by the fourth quarter of this year and by the first quarter of next year the firm will launch its first quad-core processors.
