    Why even publish benchmarking scores that dont use a standard FSB, possibly not even a standard multiplier.

    Even if Athlon64 moves to a higher FSB it wont be 221.6, 221, 222, or any of the 5 numbers surrounding it. Or maybe im too constricted in my way off thinking to say its not possible.

    Its a little early for #'s to be coming in my opinion.
    I also agree with JediAgent, the #'s don't seem right either.
    What is it with testing it with such an unusual set-up?

    Athlon64 is still due to be released sept 22 (?) so we will see how they really perform then

    but according to this article at the Inq. ( the Athlon64 is the same as an Opteron
    [b]So, the burning question is, what's the difference between the 940 pin Opteron 1xx and the 940 pin Athlon64? Before you ask that question, make sure your local AMD representative is not a) standing upright b) around anything that they could hit their head on c) holding any sharp objects. The difference is the laser etching on the heat spreader that says Opteron 1xx or Athlon64. Yup, that's it. Now, how are the poor PR folk at AMD going to explain the maybe difference between the two chips? You can almost hear the "Thud" as they hit the floor and curl up, I know I would. Keep sharp objects away from them until Q1/04 at the least.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    It was always meant to be the same as an Opteron, only Opterons could do multi-cpu setups. I dont think AMD ever intended otherwise. They may have done some more complex lockout to stop Athlon64 owners to use their procs in multi-cpu setups, but thats about it. What else is the Opteron 1xx supposed to come with? A better "corporate" warranty? A stick of gum?


    Come to think about it, with what the intended for the Hammer core and and its market share categories, why they even spent the money to brand a Athlon64 a Opteron1xx baffles me. Why not just tell server builders that to obtain the Opteron name for their servers they need to have atleast a 2 cpu setup, or a Opteron2xx in single cpu mode. That would save the money it cost the laser to call a Athlon64 a Opteron1xx instead of a Athlon64
