what to buy: opteron 146 or the 3700+

Recommended Posts

so...the 1000mhz ht does not matter that much ?

lol

 

does anyone actually pay attention that at all?

 

I never do

 

I pay attention to cpu mhz, and how good they overclock

 

HT = has zero to do with performance (i get the same performance setting the HT (LDT) multi @ 3.0x, 4.0x, 5.0x) from all that I have tested

 

I have a feeling AMD intended it to be some number that would wow you via relation to performance

 

it is just a number that gets in teh way as far as I am concerned

If the price wasnt there 3700 all the way but you cant beat that price so 146.

and also - looking at this other thread here on the forum, for the dual core opteron 165 for only $230 dollars with a coupon code - that would be pretty much the ultimate buy for a processor for around $200 dollars....am i correct ?

The HT speed of 1000 and 2000 are the same for both chips...They are just labled different...

 

they are still both 200 x 2 x 5 = HT speed...

= 2000mhz...

If your looking at the 165, then try to get the CCBBE 0610 steppings.

 

If the 146, try for a CABYE a CABNE or a CAB2E. Those all overclock pretty well. Then again, almost any stepping will hit 2.5 ghz with ease.

 

So yeah, 146 over 3700 in a heartbeat.
