I've got a server running a single AMD 64 that runs quite spiffly under Gentoo linux/2.6 kernel. I suspect the dual cores will be nearly, but not quite, double the spiffy.
Just don't go 4-Way with Opteron's yet. There's a flaw in the basic design of the CPU that can create a lot of latency ni a 4-Way configuration.Originally posted by alexd
i have heard nothing but good things about them....
with the experience of building the board server using opterons and watching how smooth they are in an enterprise setting and using a Barton Core XP 3100 Athlon here at home i have grown to respect AMD.
