    I've been out of the loop with the FX-51 model....:o

    I know the Athlon64 is designed for gaming and general use.
    I know the Opteron is designed for server and workstation use.
    What is the Athlon FX-51 designed for ? :?:

    I thought the Athlon64 was built on the Clawhammer core and that the Opteron was built on the Sledgehammer core...??

    OK, I'll take your word for it. I have a vague recollection about reading something about this. The problem is that there tends to be a fair amount of misinformation on any kind of system prior to its official release. Manufacturers sometimes make last minute changes to the production model so we get all screwed up.

    As for available speeds, the naming of the processors and the future of the Athlon 64, nothing yet is officially known, but there is a considerable amount of information out there, the consensus of which is:

    The Athlon 64 will be initially available in a 754-pin, single channel memory model clocked at 2.0GHz and named the Athlon 64 3200+ and a 940-pin (identical to the Opteron) dual-channel memory model clocked at 2.2Ghz and named, oddly enough, the Athlon FX-51.

    As you can see, the resemblance of the rumored 'FX' Athlon 64 to the Opteron processor is striking.

    The Athlon FX is not supposed to be multi-processor compatible, but opinions are divided as to whether this is an actual rebranded Opteron processor... More likely, the Athlon FX is simply an Athlon 64 chip which passed all the tests well enough to meet the elevated requirements of processor and system bandwidth. We will have to wait for the release date to find out for sure.

    The Athlon FX is a 939pin version of the 940pin Opteron, the missin' pin removes the SMP support from the CPU.
