dual-core drivers

I've been reading for a while about people saying to make sure you get the dualcore drivers from AMD when you get your system running. Well now that I finally got my replace cpu (first one arrived smashed) I'm looking at the AMD site and wonder which are the actual drivers everyone is speaking of? I guess I'm confused by the stuff on the site or something

  1. Which AMD dual core do you have?

    If you have an Opteron then you want:
    "AMD Opteron™ Processor PowerNow! Driver for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Version (exe) 1.2.2.2"
    http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_9033,00.html

    If you have an X2 then you want:
    "AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor Driver for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Version (exe) 1.2.2.2"
    http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_9706,00.html

    This is assuming you use Windows XP of course. Microsoft has also has a patch available for dual core processors, but I don't think its publicly available for download. You will have to call Microsoft are request it if you are having performance issues and think that patch may help you.

  2. Here's the driver right here:

    http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/4/x86_64/iso/FC4-x86_64-DVD.iso

    it's ONLY 2.7GB but worth the download :D :D :D
