Default Re: AMD processor

"X2's not great for overclocking."Yeah you are right there, they are excellent for overclocking. My brother has the 3800 overclocked to +4400. And apparently according to numerous overclocking forums a genuine +4400 is one of the most overclockable CPU's ever. I know for a fact it can be overclocked to +5200 without any problems.

The CPU cores in the Opteron 275 don't use hyper transport to communicate to each other directly. They actually use a Crossbar switch.

It's true that the Opterons have extra hyper transport incoherent links.

The best quotes I've ever heard:
