    Default Opteron 6204 the ultimative gaming Bulldozer CPU

    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

    A intel 2600K do only have 8mb cache... and the 2600K can only handle a AVX256bit code per single clock if no FPU is used and the Opteron 6204 can handle full AVX256bit+128bit FPU per single clock.,

    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.

    its a 16core server bulldozer g34 with 12 cores deactivated and 12mb L2 cache deactivated

    the benefit of this CPU is the high clock speed and the high turbo clock speed and the high L2 cache count per core 2mb and the high L3 cache 16mb for the 4 core cpu.
