Wouldnt be surprised they make alot of weird high end stuff usually as a test bed, although people who need that kind of power would better go to IBM or Cray one of the supercomputer makers for one of the lower end setups they make.

http://www.microsoft...datacenter.mspx datacenter is capable of handling up to 64 proc's at once...you have to (well...i don't know about 2003 but with 2000 datacenter you had to) order the machines custom for the OS...they build it with as many procs as you request....though the os is usually used in more of a clustered environment
