Opteron Prices jump!!

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any price jump here yet. I'll check it tomorrow, because maybe the market is slower here to react.

 

Very few have them in stock, but they still offer the 165 for about 170 - 190 $ and report that they will be available the next week.

I agree! People who have a 939 system who don't have a dualcore cpu should get one now while they can & clock stable as much as they can until AM3 gets here as im not moving until that at the earliest.

 

The Optys are still priced ok here in the UK, infact the price has dropped.

 

Got my Opty185 yesterday for £207 when just a month before from the same place it was £270.

 

And as you can see from my sig its a cracker.

Whats so good about an Opty?

 

They overclock much better on average than an A64-branded chip. Purportedly because of the silicon.
