Opteron 6204 GHZ:3,3 basic clock 4.2ghz turbo
256bit ram interface per CPU
2mb L2 cache per core
16mb L3 cache per CPU
2FPU 64bit unit per core
one 256bitAVX(or 4SSE 64bit units)
the downside of the CPU:
only 2 integer units per core
and the price: 370-450€
yes finally a nice gaming CPU from AMD.
I guess you need to write your own game that runs faster on that cpu than on an Intel cpu
Am I misreading things, or is this actually a quad-core Interlagos (i.e. two dice with one working module each, in a Socket G34 package)?
Who cares really. As much as I like AMD, a 2500K is the ultimate gaming CPU these days. Everything else is just throwing money out the window for no reason.

Sure a i7-2600(K) is overpriced for about 5% performance gain. Just more fun to see 8 "cores" due to ht But i really don't see any amd GAMING cpus which are fast at stock speed. For gaming you need usually fast speed/1 core and there amds need at least +500/600 mhz more compared to an Intel cpu to match speed. Also at fullspeed amd needs more power (125w compared to 95w) too. So why on earth do you think amd sells "gaming" cpus? Opteron was never made for gaming btw. and the new fx cpus are a joke in that area. Btw. the slow speed/1 core is one of the reasons why amd bapco results look so extremely bad...
Between the GPU bottlenecks at one end of the spectrum and the fact that fps get wasted at the other... What's the point of this thread again?
Look up the article comparing an Athlon II x3 to an i7 on Tom's Hardware... Especially the part about minimum framerates.
