In case you haven’t seen this, readtrace has been updated to also support the SQL Server 2008 trace format and new data types. There are lots of other fixes and changes in there so go and get the latest version to take a look:
This is a big announcement made at WinHEC http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/features/2008/nov08/11-06winserverr2.mspx
“[…] we continue to invest in scalability. In Windows Server 2008 R2, we have built in support for up to 256 logical processors, which will allow our customers to more fully exploit today’s powerful CPUs, deploying only the features they choose and scaling those solutions to meet their organization’s needs.”

[UPDATE] - Go to about 32 minutes; I particularly like the shot of task manager with 256 processors (about 38 minutes in)
