Chip fiddler AMD has delivered two new Opteron chips for data centers keen on getting their mits on low-cost servers built to Facebook's "Open Compute" design.

Nice chips.

Just a shame its not like the old days when you could slap a Opteron 180 in your NF4 DFi Lanparty board.

Great times.

So...

I fail to see what Warsaw brought to the table... in fact it seems no-one knows. For example, the AMD Opteron 6366HE is a 1.8GHz part with a higher turbo core speed (3.1GHz) , but some $20 cheaper and an 85W TDP. The new Opterons don't really feel new, do they?

So 6366HE vs. 6370P is 10% slower, 15% less power-hungry, but 25% faster in Turbo mode. It's also cheaper. They are both 16-core CPUs and use the same socket. What concealed architectural feature did AMD implement that will make us give a damn?

Re: So...

The claim is that the Warsaw core is about 20% faster, clock for clock. If so you will see better overall performance, even if the top speed has been dropped. Also on a loaded system it's unlikely you would reach the turbo core speed, so the normal rated speed is what many users are looking at.

99W, sounds like toaster oven.
