AMD Opteron 2224 3.2Ghz Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Well it appears that the K8 architecture is not quite dead yet. AMD has managed to squeeze an extra 200Mhz out of the 90nm manufacturing process to create the 3.2Ghz Opteron 2224. Anandtech has just posted a review of the aforementioned Opteron 2224.
Heres what they had to say:
The most interesting thing about AMD's latest launch is probably that AMD has now a 3GHz Opteron that consumes very little when running at low load while it keeps the power consumption reasonable at full load. The Opteron 2224 SE will only interest the people who have already invested in clusters of cheap socket F servers and who are looking to squeeze more performance out of them. If you haven't made that investment already, there's nothing really new or surprising with the latest launch, so you might be best off waiting a bit longer to see what the future holds.
While Socket F Opterons are outside the reach of most consumers, this chip is fundamentally identical to the upcoming Athlon 64 X2 6400+, which will be the last processor in the Athlon 64 X2 family.
