im pretty srue these are multithreaded, so dual core of course...

opteron = athlon FX = athlon at the same clocks. the rest is marketing. they are identical CPUs.

while i have not seen benchmarks specifically confirming this, seeing as how the conroe tends to lead just performance in just about everything, i would think the conroe.
