AMD telling it's partners how to upgrade


A technical sales training video of how to upgrade from a dual core AMD socket-F system to a quad core Barcelona.  Oddly enough the engineer on the video swaps out the BIOS chip rather than flashing the server, but a BIOS flash will do the job.

The great news here is that you can keep the same hardware platform and cooling, which should save a lot of money for those that are just looking at getting more raw CPU power.

It's a shame you can't see the CineBench scores in the video, but the quality just isn't good enough, but it looks cool as it CineBench runs eight renders at one time.
