opteron or venice or san diego?

Recommended Posts

Looks like Opty is a winner!! I would seriously consider the used opty but new ones are only $150 now. And as far a the release date and stepping. I know how that works, I am an old AMD socket A mobile overclocker :cool:

 

Unfortunately it is stuff to get online Vendors to guarantee a particular stepping. It is all wharehouse FOB these days! I think Mwave or Monarch will do stepping guarantee. But I am in love with NewEgg :angel:

 

Since we are on the subject : What stepping would you guys recommend that has been releasesd in the last year, that MIGHT still be in stock at online stores?

 

 

OH.....I don't want dual anything yet!! :eek2: That will be next year ;)

 

Thanks Again!

Known good steppings that are capable of 3ghz:

CCB1E 0550VPMW

CCBWE 0550UPMW (Some are crappy actually)

CCB1E 0605XPMW

CCB1E 0606VPMW

CCB1E 0608MPMW

CCB1E 0609FPAW

CCB1E 0609FPMW

CCBBE 0610DPMW

CCBBE 0615DPMW

 

Honorable Mention:

CCBWE 0530TPMW (2.9ghz avg.)

CCBWE 0546XPMW (2.85ghz avg.)

CCBWE 0609FPAW (Unconfirmed precise averages, but seems to be 2.8-2.9)

 

AVOID if you want to hit 2.8ghz+:

CCBWE 0534SPMW

CCBWE 0543TPMW

CCBWE 0546MPMW

CCBWE 0551 (Any packing code) (2.7-2.75ghz 1.55v)

CCBWE 0602 (Any packing code)

CCBWE 0607 (Any packing code) (2.65ghz 1.55v)

Socket 940 Opterons use ECC RAM, Socket 939 Opterons use regular unbuffered non-ECC 184-pin DDR RAM.

 

And also, I'll put in another vote for an Opteron :D
