Companies offering 64-bit, 8-core workstations

Let's build a list of companies that offer dual (or more) processor 64-bit workstations.

Add links if you got them:
Apple, obviously
HP's new line is getting surprisingly good press
Polywell offers a workstation specifically designed for Adobe CS4
Cerise is new to me, but has a great industry reputation

I'm particularly interested in multi-processor Nehalem machines.
And notice that one thing most of them share (at least as an option) is the Nividia CX graphics card.

They seem to be a dealer, not a manufacturer. Which one did you buy?

Re: Companies offering 64-bit, 8-core workstations

CUDA is fascinating and powerful, but it's worthless unless the app is written to support it. No Adobe apps are. As far as Photoshop goes, it would be running on a single 2.33ghz quadcore CPU. Very good still, but not up the the 3+ghz 8 core machines mentioned.

djsoulglo,

that's only a 6 core. mac does have some 8 cores in the mac pro line, with up to 32 gigs of ram and 4 terabytes of harddrive space and 4 pci-e cards expansion.
