Store 450 high-def movies on a Vista-AMD PC

AMD today released its new Quad FX processors designed to make the most of Windows Vista Ultimate.

For the bare processors, prices start at $599.

The processors include 12 SATA controllers that enable 9 terabytes of storage on a PC, which AMD noted is room for more than 450 high-def movies. One of these setups can also drive up to eight monitors at once in case you want to operate a high-def movie arcade.

Now that’s a Vista Premium Ready system.

(This was updated after some instructive comments from Terrance; I should also mention that technical reviewers seem lukewarm to the Quad FX)
