Drop in replacements for existing Opteron builds I think. More power efficient equating to a proposed company $ saving. (oh yes and environment )

As for new purchases, can`t see them being sold at a high volume outside of undercutting the Intel prices. Although if the power saving shows it`s $ value, even if they don`t smash Intel in terms of performance in benchmark examples, "doing the job" and saving a company $ is a selling point in itself. They`d have to do a long term study on that and present it.

Performance for the desktop`er, no.

Server socket...F is it? AM2 products out later this year

Be careful who's reviews you read as well

Check this out. We've been in contact with AMD but they haven't been very forthcoming...

Could AMD only give samples to people who will give them good reviews?

Well they are finally here.

I would say that it is early days for these processors and it will take a while for them to settle and be fine tuned.

The Intel processors have been out for some time and they have already gone through this process.

I do like AMD processors as they are pretty cost effective, or were in the past.

I am looking forward to doing the same aproach on a new build with one processor (4core) for now and adding another later on.

I built my dual Athlon MP system over 7 yrs ago and it still knocks the socks of many of the systems of today. Not bad for a life span 5 yrs
