What is the maximum number of AMD64 cores supported by CentOS 4?

The RedHat page https://www.redhat.com/software/rhel/configuration/

suggests that RHEL 4 AS supports up to 8 AMD64/EM64T logical cpus. Is  
that accurate and does it apply to CentOS 4?

I see a few vendors offering boxes with 8 (dual core) CPU sockets.  
IWILL  for one.
