585G2 Quad Core / Plans for 8 Way box?

Any ideas when these are going to be available?

I know the 580 is available in Quad Core but I havent tested Intel vs AMD on SQL 2005 yet.

Also are there any plans for an 8 way box to compete with the Sun XW4600.

At the moment if Sun release the Quad Core for the XW4600 then I'm going to have no option but to recommend we use the Sun boxes for our Database Servers, Unless HP release something with more cpu's that doesnt run on the Itanium platform and supports a good amount of memory (128Gb+)

I think the DL585 G5 (yes, G5) is supposed to be the answer to the DL580 G5.

Nope, it shouldn't be much longer. HP is skipping directly from DL585 G2 to DL585 G5 to simplify the naming scheme for folks trying to compare the DL585 to the DL580 G5.
