But the odds of a higher overclock will be in the 170's favor. I dont like X2's. I dont understand why people buy them when they have options for opterons. especially the 4200, that's a joke.
People are getting 2.7ghz on 3800+ for $300 ! That's a great deal, not very many dual core procs are going to get much faster w/o spending a lot more money.

When do the opterons stop being single core and become Dual Core ? Is it the 165 and upwards because I found a cheapish 170 but it doesnt state that it is a dual core.
The 3800+ and 4200+ have 512kb l2 cache per core. The 44 and 48 have 1mb l2 cache per core.
