We've managed to get a picture of what should be one of the first boards of this kind and as you can see, it looks slightly different from the dual CPU Nehalem/Xeon boards we've seen so far. It only has four memory slots per CPU for starters, although only three can be used for triple-channel DDR3 and we're not sure if anyone will use the fourth slot.
As this is a server board it doesn't have the normal selection of slots and the design is quite different from what you'd expect when it comes to desktop boards and our understanding is that this board is meant for one of the big server manufacturers.
