Crowning a new Champ; AMD’s Opteron 165
After all, if you can get essentially two Opteron processors into a single-socket motherboard, you’ve got low-end server and workstation nirvana. Like their multi-socket siblings, Opteron series chips are fabricated with AMD’s 90nm process and cram roughly million transistors into mm 2 of die area.
Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. It has a large 1Mb cache for each core largest available for S dual core cpu. Show More Show Less. AMD says that Opterons go through more extensive validation than Athlon 64 processors, no doubt because leveraging synergies is not something to be done lightly.

Don’t forget either, the Opterons are known for their general overclockablity, so going with one of these new low cost behemoths and then overclocking in excess of 2. Yet when plugged into an obliging enthusiast-class motherboard, the Opteron ‘s overclocking prowess has earned it a rep for being more dangerous than Dick Optrron with a gauge full of birdshot.
Skip to main content. The Opteron is a 1. This CPU is legendary for its overclocking capability 1.
Dell returns to the amx market after six years. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. The Opteron s up close Those of you who are unfamiliar with AMD’s dual-core Opteron processors would do well to read our original review of these CPUs for a technology overview.
As a result, the new dual-core Opteron processors will drop into a plain ol’ Socket motherboard and communicate happily with a pack of unbuffered DIMMs, just like an Athlon Our primary interest in the Opterons and today, however, is in workstation use, and so we’ve elected to test them instead on Asus’ excellent A8NSLI Deluxe motherboard, head to head against their Athlon 64 cousins.
The Tyan Tomcat K8E motherboard. The Opty runs great in a typical non-server S motherboard.
AMD Opteron 165 (UP) @ 2700.66 MHz
AMD’s Opteron processors are aimed squarely at the server and workstation market and thus come with extra features such as larger caches which help speed up repetitive processes. That’s beginning to materialize in the form of mobos like Tyan’s Tomcat K8E. Many overclocking types have taken this language to mean that clock frequencies are chosen more conservatively a,d Opteron chips.
The name, pretty much. Will purchase again from seller. Direct Connect Architecture delivers the best 2P and 4P architecture for x86 computing, resulting in the best performance-per-watt in the market. They’ve had to suffer in relative obscurity as their siblings and cousins, the Opteron series and the Athlon 64, have gone on to resounding success.
Intel Core iK 4. Let’s see what we can see. You may also like. Intel Core i Coffee Lake 2. The Opterons and Unlike other Opterons, though, the dual-core series chips take advantage of the Socket motherboard infrastructure created for the Athlon Just two weeks ago however, our channel sources confirmed that the Opterona dual-core socket processor had indeed started shipping.
Intel Core iK 5. The is a brand-new dual-core CPU based on Intel’s nanometer Presler core, as in the Extreme Edition that we reviewed last month.
AMD Opteron (UP) @ MHz – CPU-Z VALIDATOR
To facilitate such things, AMD has sought to free the Opteron series from prior constraints by moving some pins around on the underside of the chips. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
With its Direct Connect Architecture, the AMD Opteron processor helps eliminate the real challenges and bottlenecks of system architectures qmd everything is directly connected to the CPU.
