So if u could use a 939, X2 or Opteron, why the choice?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
What's the point if these two are so similar, especially when you compare the Toledo cores to the Opterons. I don't understand the differences...

What he said. At the end it all comes down to price. Right now Opterons are rather cheap.

the ocs are depending on stepping and luck, either way youll probably end up about the same either way, the only advantage is that the lower end say 1.8ghz opti 165 has 2x1mb l2 while the 3800x2 only has 2x512mb l2, this is the only real thing thats better

like already stated the X2 and Opty DC are both Toledo cores, one big difference (Ive owned both) is Ive noticed the Opty uses less volts to get a high OC

Opterons are server CPU's. They're cut from the best silicon on the wafer (the center), and because of this, they are more stable than retail CPU's. They will give you a better OC on average, but the X2 aren't far off the money.
