    Default Newer Opty's from the Egg kick ass!

    I'll post the full stepping when I grab my digicam, but for now I'm very happy with my $114 shipped Opty 170. Thanks to corpsejockey for facilitating this steal of a deal and alerting me to the change in core. Note the core, which reads Toledo instead of Denmark. Rumor has it that these are rebadged S940 chips.

    It does 2.5 out of the box on stock VCore thus far (still testing!!). Many have hit 2.7-2.8 on stock volts! Just to make a comparison, the Opty 170 Denmark I had maxed out at 2.7GHz and would not budge past it.

    So Newegg blessed these CPU's with the same mojo they use to bless the FedEx truck?

    lol...perhaps. In any case I'm not complaining.

    corpsejockey (The Rocketfish dude) did some research on this and said that this is the same stepping as a S940 Opty which is supposed to boot at 2.8GHz on stock volts. In any case 3.0 GHz seems to be the norm with these newer chips. I'm gonna push this one upto 1.575V and take what I can get.

    Very nice! The fastest stable speed I've had this X2 3800+ is 2.7 although it seems like one of the cores slows down at this speed, core 1 takes longer than core 0 to do the same work in Orthos.

    Mat, check this out. It's a quick 1M run, but I'm gonna burn this in with CPUBurn (no error checking) all day, come back and run StressCPU on both cores. But this looks promising 2.6GHz at stock volts. Looks like AMD's loss in the server segment is my gain!

    I usually have average luck, but these last couple of Opty buys have been killers (144@3.2GHz). It's nice to be lucky for a change.

    It seems to be stable at 2.6.

    Time to break into the 2.7 league.

    Did I say kick ass? Still on stock volts!

    More burning in tonight.

    Man I wish I have an Opty. I haven't tried hard, but thus far my 4800 is only at 2.65.

    I'm getting 37's in a one million run but I've noticed that if I have F&H running it runs faster (36's) than if the chip isn't running anything aside from my PC as I run it every day.

    This should help dispel the myth that having system resources used by other apps gives a negative result, that doesn't hold true. I ran with F@H, got 36.67s (roughly) and without and pulled 37.75s or so.

    It looks like the extra L2 gives a good result though. I'm pretty impressed although I'd have to think long and hard about if the four or five second increase is worth $114 to me. I'm actually very happy with my 3800+ but it's fun to dream I guess.

    That's pretty bad. Sure your board isn't an issue?

    Even my 4100+ runs at > 2.5GHz w/ stock voltage.
