      We have used both the AMD X2 and Opteron range in our servers for well over a year now and found no difference in performance or reliability – I will update the thread if that changes!

      Technically there is also no difference when comparing the models of these CPU’s that have the same Core, MHz and Cache specs, the only difference we ever found was poor availability and much higher prices for the Opteron version of technically the same spec processor.

      So far, from using these processors in the real world, I’m not that convinced the Opterons have the suggested higher level of testing or performance as AMD marketing suggests, unless someone can show me some real facts and not just repeat the manufacturers sales talk at me, I think we’ll just keep getting the cheaper version of the same thing with the same performance!

        Glad to know you have found performance equivalent for both opteron and AMD x2. Sure, it would be nice if you keep posted with the updates if you come across any major difference w.r.t to performance

              Please feel free to expand on your comments and questions, I'm not quite sure what you are trying to prove. Or why you posted this.

              Let me know the problem you have with my comments and our high quality and exceptionally low priced server offers and I'll try to clarify them for you.

                LOL, No problem.

                I’m always more than happy to discuss any and all aspects of our business. We have always tried to provide the best service possible to our clients, using the very best equipment that’s fully tested to be fit for purpose before being offering it to clients.

                If you had looked a little further around Tyan's site into the specs of our Tyan based servers, you would see that Tyan does indeed recommend and support the Athlon processors we offer with our servers.

                In the case of the Opterons vs. Athlon X2 processors as I discussed in more detail earlier today in this thread, we have so far found them to be equivalent in every detail, including performance after a year or more of real world usage. We clearly advertise the exact processors that we are offering with our dedicated servers and the lower pricing per CPU the Athlon version offers allows us to offer some of the lowest prices and best deals for dedicated servers in the UK. Which is something clients tend not to complain about!
