He's talking about Dual AMD Athlon XP Processors. :)

And no, you can no longer Dual XP without physically modifying the L5 bridges on the chips, and by using very specific bios versions for certain motherboards.

If your thinking about Dual 2400+ XP's, its near impossible, as these chips are the Thoughbred Rev B processors, and are slightly physically different from the 2200+ and previous Tbred Athlon processors.

The only successfully Dual 2400+ MP (Which still isn't successful because its locking up rather consistently) was done on the MSI Dual Athlon board, with the lastest beta bios, and by closing a variety of bridges on the processors with a conductive pen.

You can read more about this on the 2cpu.com forums.
