AMD's Opteron 250 vs. Intel's Xeon 3.6 GHz in a Workstation Duel of the Elite

Mains Adaptors And Heatsinks

With a power supply weighing 4.8 kg, the new Xeon is well provided for. Supermicro sent this gem along with it.

At 760 watts, the SP762-TS power supply from Ablecom, which is marketed by SuperMicro, offers sufficient capacity for the dual Nocona - and certainly for any other system that is not to be listed in the top server categories with four or more processors.

The new Xeon heatsinks weigh almost precisely two kilograms together.
