  1. hot dang, wtf is up with Amd pricing? I thought they were for the little man...f'king thieves.
  2. I like to check in on the kennel once in a while...still I see Amd acting like little babies, never advertising, always complaining.
  3. Well meltie, still telling the same lies I see. Nice of you to drop in.
    Looks like your dad is getting ready to put out a nice new chip, where's the hype?
  4. The 265 is a socket 940 part, has one more active HT link, and is rated for use in a dual processor, 4 core setup. That makes it a heavy hitter, in the small server market.
    You want something like this from Anitec, in Vancouver.
    If you dont live in B.C. they will ship, and you wont have to pay PST.
  5. ok thx for the tips
  6. For one thing since he's in Canada that could be canadan dollars and opty 200 series are for designed for servers you obviously haven't priced highend Xeon processors lately.
