+ - AMD's six-core Istanbul Opterons reviewed

Submitted by EconolineCrush
EconolineCrush writes: AMD's latest "Istanbul" Opterons add two cores per socket, for a grand total of six. Despite the extra cores, these new chips reside within the same power envelope as existing quad-core Opterons, and they're drop-in compatible with current systems. The Tech Report has an in-depth review of the new chips, comparing their performance and power efficiency with that of Intel's Nehalem-based Xeons. Istanbul fares surprisingly well, particularly when one considers its performance-power ratio with highly parallelized workloads.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
