Microsoft has  improved scalability with SQL Server 2008 R2 by adding support for 256 logical processors with the new Datacenter edition, up from 64 with SQL Server 2008. That's … well … a lot more.

Of course, the catch is that you have to also run Windows Server 2008 R2 in order to take advantage. Still, it's a big step forward for a system like SQL Server, where scalability is sometimes questioned.
