My experience with this has been limited mostly to TYAN server class
motherboards (at home and at work). My home computer which is a dual
processor opteron (Thunder K8W) has this feature and this led me to
discover that the dimm slots on CPU1 were not usable.  I guess you
sometimes don't get a bargin on eBay as I paid 1/2 price for that
board. Good thing my 4GB of memory runs 100% stable on CPU0 but I
don't get the full bandwidth I could get...
