      I had to run with a 1.8GHz Single-Core Opteron for my main desktop about 2 years ago, it wasn't a bad processor and it surprised me with how well it performed.

      It's nice to see the Opteron updates, and I'm a little mystified I suppose about the lack of a Phenom update. Makes me wonder if they'll end up scrapping the Phenom and just updating the Opterons for desktop usage. Nothing like modifying a server-class chip, after all.

      Unfortunately they're still behind.... and they still don't appear to have anything on Nehalem :row__630:

        The Phenom update is coming in late 2008/early 3009. The new Deneb core Phenom chips are just not quite ready for market. AMD is releasing their server parts first because the K10 architecture has always been better for that market than for enthusiast PC builders and buyers.

          Ah. In which case, Ive been waiting on "Deneb" before I make the jump to Phenom. My 5600+ X2 has been performing more than adequately, and making the jump to Phenom any earlier wouldn't be much of an upgrade, and a waste of money.

            why are they making a big deal about ddr2 800....


            on a completely separate note......

            will amd move to triple channel ram like the new i7?


            opties have always been great chips for overclocking, they have much more head room than desktop chips, and clock for clock (probably due to more cache compared to desktop counterparts) they normally outperform too, cost is the only downside, a few hund more usually

              Ooooh...Opterons get a update. :)

              My mind is mulling over the possibilities of using it in a heavy usage home server. Now if only the price wasn't nearly $1000 a chip...

                Good thing I held off on getting me Opteron powered dell server, Im talking to Dell now to see if the SC1435 and the T605 will or already do support Shanghai. He just told me they do but they have not released the chips yet. :D

                    My understanding was that the systems running Barcelona would be compatible with Shanghai after a BIOS update.

                      most mobo dont even need the bios update, but some of the older ones of the same socket may need an update
