I got excited when I first read 18mb of cache... then I thought about it...

512x12 = 6
and then 12mbs of L3 ('cause If i recall these are 2 6-core processors "glued" together (MCM?)

Definitely not from this series. With 2 dies under there, there's just no room to be able to fit it under the current AM3 size. Plus, it's meant to be for multi-socket machines.

Why? There is a lot of value there. Not everyone is going to drop a 1K on a Core i7.

Our intern put together a dual core Phenom II X2 550 C3 that is being run at 4Ghz. Everything was brand new, psu, case, mobo, cpu, etc., no carry over parts. Without an OS the cost was less than $500. For now that is with an onboard gpu of course. Still, try and do that with an i7.

If I can find a good cheap server motherboard with PCIE x16 slot on it in ATX form factor I will heavily consider getting this. I wonder how it will overclock.

this is what AMD excel at, and it seems like a lot of people have been forgetting that recently, slamming them for not being as fast as intel

that said, look at that TDP as well, looks like it'll run very cold...

whatever happened to the E8400 and the rest of your parts, by the way?

You could do that with an i3 so....whats your point

Phenom II x2 = Lowend
i3 = Lowend

i7 = Highend

IIRC socket G34 is only for two or four socket machines, so I doubt it would be easy to find an ATX board with two G34 sockets. Running a huge server or something that you need 24-48 cores?

I can verify the clock speeds are indeed correct. They will be 1.74GHz and 2.4GHz for the 12 core procs. Not sure about the speeds between, but definitely 1.74GHz and 2.4GHz.

The Athlon II is the low end CPU...

Okay, here we go
Base rig (I.e. Stuff shared with the Intel and AMD rigs.)
OCZ, 4GB RAM
500GB Seagate Barracuda
Lian Li PC V351
Corsair VX550
LiteOn BluRay reader

All together, that is $404.84.
Now, lets add the AMD stuff to it.
Gigabyte 785GP-UD2H
2.8Ghz Athlon II Quad Core

Sub total is $594.82.

Now, lets remove the AMD gear and chuck the Intel gear in.
Core i3 530, the lowest end 2.9Ghz Core i3.
The H55 version of that AMD board I used

$629.82 total, plus with the AMD one you get a real quad core (i.e. Not with HT) and you can unlock the L3 cache if you're lucky, performance would be very close, with gaming performance going to the AMD as the lower clocked iGPU can't keep up with the HD4200.


And there's the proof I'm not lying.
