Addressing a crowd mostly consisting of hardware engineers, he talked about how the software world was ill-prepared to make use of the new multicore CPUs coming from Intel and AMD.

"This extends up through their server editions as well, Datacenter currently topping out at 128 physical CPUs (32 on x86)."

Nope, as I stated in an earlier post, Windows Server can only enumerate a max of 64 CPU cores in a single OS instance due to the use of a simple 64bit CPU mask. This can and likely will be changed in the next release.
