I don't think there are any motherboards that support that.

Hmm you could glue them on the top of the same machine.

I remember back in the day seeing something about being able to switch between Intel and AMD on the same machine. I think it was a ISA card or something like that, back in the slot processor days. Can't seem to find a link.

So,it looks like it's possible to switch between them.I didn't do any research,I'm just wondering.

Thanks man,that is very useful,that motherborad is simply awesome.I'm reading the second page,but already things like;

AMD and Intel technologies are completely different from each other, so it's impossible to use one product in the other's platform. Or at least that has been the general rule until now...

You know crashmeister,this is really amazing.I was reading something here in one of the forums and I think I saw one of your posts and I said to myseelf "Hey,I never really checked what's that T2 really about" because I saw that you use it.So I started searching and there I was on their pages reading about it and somewhere on their site I saw something like "different processors on the same architecture" and that's how this thread started.
To answer your question;well,I'm always interested in something new and this motherboard seems to give you a lot of control over whats goin' on inside your machine and I like that,also the possibility to test performance of two different processors on the same machine is really cool to me.Somehow I believe that this is the future,so why not check it out.
Now I got a question for you,how are you doin' with T2,is it so hard to work on it? I haven't tried it so far but it looks and sounds cool,so I will check it out in the near future for sure.

Oh my - the t2 addiction of mine...

I tried various times to get a working system up with it but it never seems to cooperate.
Started when my crappy laptop w/o hd was still alive and I used puppy on it and figured I didn't like some parts of it.Actually - I did get that build as I wanted it.

Right now it's backburner but it would be fun if somebody came out with a target that works with one of the mobile(cell) platforms.
