Opty 165 "Myth Buster"

An Interesting benchmark: Pentium D against Athlon and Opteron 165 chips

The Best-Value Dual-Core AMD Processor: Opteron 165 CPU

Surprisingly confirms the high potential of Opteron for overclocking. (50%higher!) At the same time, those who do not intend to overclock ( i.e. wanna their systems to last longer) wont get too much out of this chip.

  1. Yeah, that's very interesting. I would have liked to have seen the results of testing while they had it OC'd. Still, even stock, it pretty much holds its own.
  2. I have not read the article, nor do I want to (too lazy) but if they're just benching the 165 @ Stock, that's nothing but a 3000+ DC, which is not the greatest CPU in the world, as we already know. But nobody buys an Opteron w/o overclocking in mind.

  3. yeah so true. All I know is, I got mine up over 2.4Ghz so far and i'm amazed. This thing opens up programs faster than a speeding bullet,
    Is able to leap tall monitors in a single bound,
    Is it Intel?
    Is it Via?
    Hell no, its AMD and i'm hooked!
