    I think you are mistaken. The most recent announcement on the Giga Designs website is that there are introducing a dual-processor upgrade using the 7447A FreeScale CPU. This is not a dual-core chip. It's just a modified version of the G4 currently in use. If you look at the product pictures of the cards using these chips there are clearly 2 CPUs. The dual-core chips are not even sampling yet are they?
