Ha, basically the cache is primary difference, lol. They are expensive though.

no, not only is the cache different, it uses a better memory controller, the 146 opterons can be found for 199 on monarch. That is a bargain for such a great cpu IMO. The better memory controller than the A64's will weild higher overclocks, and compute things much much faster.

I'll consider Opterons for future server builds, but at the same time, I'm still drooling over the Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or 4800+. Just watch when next year comes around and these Toledo cores become a thing of the past. Change is good...

Now the M2, that's what I'm waiting for. My next build will be based around that. But damn, it won't come out until April. Oh well. DDR1, Socket 939 will stick around well into 1st quarter of 2007 anways.

Athlon 64 FX-62 Windsor M2

Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Windsor M2
Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Windsor M2
Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor M2
Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor M2
Athlon 64 4000+ Orleans M2
Athlon 64 3800+ Orleans M2
Athlon 64 3500+ Orleans M2
Sempron 3800+ Manila M2
