Opteron @ 1.8ghz faster than a 3 gig pentium?

Well the benchmarks are in ladies and gentalmen and it looks like we have a winner. While browing threw the anadtech forums I came across and interesting article about projecting the performance of an athlon 64. So they stuck a pci slot geforce 4 in a number of machines including.... you guessed it, A pentium 4 3.06 gig with hyperthreading enabled. Running at 1.8 ghz and being a server processor it was expected to run VERY well at buisness aplications and day to day work. But when they started to benchmark it in some gaming tests a phenomenom emerged. They opteron put a heavy lead out on intels pentium 4 3.06 gig processor. Is it in the onboard die? Will intel be able to keep up? What does this mean for the future of computing? Ill let you decide.

if only the dipshits would bring there price's down like they used to be, instead of matching Intel on price. AMD was susposed to always be cheaper.

amd is cheaper... look @ the performance/dollar value and amd wins hands down...

opteron's are server side... the athlon64's are for desktops and should be out soon.. @ higher clocks I believe (ie north of 2.0 ghz... )

amd needs profits gonzo... they dont do things just to make their fans happy... they also need to appease their investors :)

newer products always command a premium... regardless of manufacturer...

Oh I know this I remember paying 200 bucks for a 1800+ was just saying the desktop ones should be a cheaper solution.

I am sure it will be cheaper than the server side solution... does it not come with less cache... maknig it cheaper ?

I don't think it will hamper games much thats more of a content creation and work type of feature I really don't care about. let my work worry about how fast I can make stuff, when I'm at home its all about games :)

Welll acctually There will be two version of the athlon 64. One with a 256 cache and one matching the servers onboard catch at 1meg. Im interested in seeing how they divide these two processors. I wonder if it will be a duron/athlon type deal. Also will the decreased pin count effect the performance that much? I wonder if us hard core gamers will be attacking the opteron solutions with nfroce 3 pro boards with server chips. It should be interesting to see how long Amd raises the stakes before the lay their royal flush against Intels hand. One thing is for sure, Intel made a big mistake by not trying to match Amd on this.

I can't wait for the nForce 3 motherboard that Asus is developing: will be the first multimedia-friendly solution for the Opteron processor. I think I'm going to want one of those over the Athlon 64 in due time.

A 1.4 GHz Opteron 240 is going for $305.00 OEM on NewEgg.com ($315.00 retail), but I wouldn't buy it yet; the motherboards out there for it are crap right now (they have no AGP slots, for instance).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
