What is it and how fast compared to say an... fx 57. I am not talking about 1 chip vs 8, but one on one. And don't tell me to google it, if i could find it on google i wouldn't be asking here. Thanks.

More about : fastest opteron

Useless comment but the fastest opteron is the one with the highest number (Duhh /homer).

I am pretty sure the Opteron 180 and the FX-57 (60?) are the chip, just the opteron is subject to more stringent quality controls and therefore overclocks better.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong people. I know you kind folks will. :roll:

The FX-57 is single core and has a 2.8GHz core clock.

The Fastest single core Opteron 939 is the 154 @ 2.8GHz core clock

The fastest Dual Core Opteron 939 is the 180 @2.4GHz core clock.

The Opteron is a better CPU at the same core clock.

You are basically saying that the opteron 800 series is the fastest, uuuum...
NO. Correct me if i am wrong but 800 just means that it will work together with 7 other chips on a mobo.

Because i want to know.

Isn't the fx series better ? Ie is an fx-57 faster than a 152

The Opteron 8xx is used in Quad or 8way Opteron servers.

The FX-57 runs at 2.8GHz core clock

The Opteron 152 runs at 2.6GHz core clock

The FX-57 is probably a bit faster.

The Opteron 154 runs at 2.8GHz core clock and should be about as fast or slightly faster than the FX-57.

Both the FX-57 and the Opteron series are very high quality parts but the Opteron may be marginally better. Both are rumored to OC well.

I believe the opty and the fx-57 might be the same depending what you are running but the fx-60 would defintly be faster and it runs quite coll which means good oveclocking

The FX-60 is 2x2600GHx, which beats the FX-57 at 1x2.8GHz in all multi-threaded apps, and the single thread apps, does pretty well too.

The Opteron 180 at 2x2.4GHz can easily be overclocked to FX-60 speeds, which is only a scant 8% of a overclock needed, which means that 99% of Opteron 180's will overclock beyond a stock FX-60, and costs $300 less.

So, the Opteron 180 is the ultimate in high end chips if you want the very top speeds without overclocking much at all.

But your nice to me? [/bats eyes]

Rich, i thought that you knew that i knew about the difference between single and dual. I just knew amost nothing about opterons, thanks for the info.
February 13, 2006 6:42:37 AM

2.8Ghz that's pretty fast :twisted:

In the future I'm switching to AMD and get more performance no matter what the cost.

It seems the Opteron 180 is the fasted PC CPU period. (or at least very near the top)
correct?
I just hope my PC lasts until the quad-cores come out early next year. (not this 2 old cores on 1 die stuff)
Then I need new everything.

The opteron 180 is no longer the fastest look what I found for sale today:

http://www.rainbow-it.co.uk/Default.aspx?tabid=86&Categ...

Ok is says in stock and on order but at least we know the 185 is coming to 939.

Any one know the specs of it?

Im guessing its a x13 multiplier so 2.6ghz

Now the fx-60 in the UK is £800 so the 185 will be £100 more for almost the same chip plus the multiplier will be locked.

:D 

AMD64 is simply a better architecture! I can't wait for Quad Core CPUs ;-)

It looks like it's backordered. :-|

So does any one know if the 185 is 2.6GHz, amd website has nothing
February 13, 2006 6:17:24 PM

Going by the Model Numbering, I think it's very safe to say yes, the 185 is 2600MHz x2 Dual Core.

Wow, I thought the 1xx series opterons are being transitioned to Socket M2 and positioned as entry level 1P server/workstation procs and AMD will be positioning the X2's as the upper-end consumer processors and the A64s will be mainstream. This is the reason that X2's are now cheaper than equivalant Opterons. 2 months back I got my Opteron 175 for $459, now it is well over $500

The 2xx and 8xx series Opterons will be moving to Socket F in Q2.

The Opteron 185 is coming soon around the time of the complete transition to M2.
This will be an M2 part only.

The Opteron 165 is NOT BEING discontinued.

yea I though you where a nice guy too... :tongue:
February 14, 2006 1:30:19 AM

Opteron 175 certainly is not. Expected alot more. Maybe I had to go with a server mobo. Experience talks.

all i am really interested in is a price drop on the fx 57
