Eight Core Nehalem out soon?

The article suggests that the chip will ship by Q1 2010.  If you can eventually buy an 8 way server filled with these, that might get you 128 threads of execution.  You can buy a Sun T5240 for less than $40K and get 128 threads today.  Does Oracle really plan to continue to invest in the SPARC architecture?  Maybe.
