This is a great article about the BP6 and multi processor boards.
A nostalgic look back at the BP6, predecessor to 4x4
Way, way back in June 1999, Abit released a real landmark motherboard – something completely different to anything available at the time, and a very clever piece of engineering – the BP6 motherboard.
The low cost BP6 took two off the shelf Socket 370 Celeron processors and ran them in Dual processor mode – something reserved at the time for only high end motherboards and slot-based Pentium IIs.
Combined with the overclockability and high performance of the low speed Celerons of the time, this was a dream for enthusiasts, as you could buy two dirt cheap processors and a motherboard for less than the cost of a Pentium II, run them at a higher clock speed, and get the advantages of the dual core processing – six years before the launch of the current generation of dual core chips!
AMD’s 4x4 platform will mark the first dual processor motherboards targeted at consumers since the BP6, so it has some big boots to fill.
