There is a review of the opteron at toms hardware.

It sure rocks

if it shows up blank.. just refresh page...

Damn, they are getting hit very hard.

I have a hard time connecting.

it would appear the time is now for the xeon to retire :)

it can't handle with the big boy that amd has unveiled..

something 1ghz faster has a hard time keeping up...

the core optimizations apparently are a good thing...

Linux looked good but the Opteron got worked in the windows benchmarks. I would like to read somthing other than thg before coming to any conclusions though. And I would like to see some benchies with a NF3pro. :D

Thers quite a performance increase when running in 64bit mode in same cases almost 50%

64-bit Windows + NVIDIA nForce3 Pro or AMD-8000 series chipset + AMD Athlon 64 or AMD Opteron + ATI R400 = built for Doom III and Half-Life 2.

:D

haha....you're too slow Sazar. Cotita already posted about the Opteron review, although his choice of a thread title was pretty poor.....anyway...merged.

Another good review is on anandtech (realy smashing the xeons ...)

I urge you to Explore Anandtech's performance evaluation of the Opteron at 1.8GHz here (http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1818). It takes out the 3.0MHz P4 in many of the benchmarks, with only a 1.8GHz core.

Remember, the P4's SSE2 unit can execute 2 double precision ops and 4 single precision ops; it executes just as many ops per cycle as the Hammer, yet it manages to exceed opteron's performance on SSE2 apps by a small margin (with a ~30% clockspeed advantage and performance tuned chipset). This is an impressive feat, as are the results of the opteron on the other tests.
