I know that I have a 2.2ghz CPU and the Opteron is only a 2.0ghz, but it being an Opteron should make it a performance increase, especially when overclocking, right?

The very best I have been able to get out of my 4400+ is 2.646mhz


Please let me know your views, I can get a pretty good deal on this, I just do not know much about Opteron processors, and until now I have never heard of a Venus core Opteron

I have sent the guy an email asking him for the stepping, but have not heard back yet.

Thanks for your time

Switching a Dual Core for a Single Core is a bad idea. Even if you could potentially overclock it to 3 GHz, you are losing the Multitasking flexibility that having another Core allows you for just a little performance increase in Single Threaded applications.

Thank you so much Zir_Blazer

I am so glad I asked, I thought all Opterons were dual core. In his ad there was no mention of single or dual core

I have had lots of CPUs but never an Opteron so I have never had a reason to learn about them, I guess that if I am going to buy one I had better do some learning!!

Have a good Christmas, and thanks again
