It's a server chip. It's based on the same architecture as the Phenoms are. Doesn't seem popular here

The main reason why it's likely not very popular is because for just $15 more you have the Phenom 9850BE... which has an unlocked multi.

Can you show proof of that? I remember seeing that the Barcelona chips were based off of a different architecture.

Phenoms use the "Stars" architecture which is just a revamped Barcelona.
