Great CPU

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Too bad Interlagos wasn't out earlier, but we really needed a solution fast and the Magny-Cours are really up to the task. But I still wouldn't mind having 32 cores at 3.0 ghz with the same power-profile.

  • Summary: The Opteron 6134 is a socket G34 CPU, not a socket C32 CPU. The sockets are not interchangeable. The 4100 and 4200 Opterons are socket C32.
