Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD's Opteron 254 CPU - AMD's Opteron 254 CPU
Wed, December 14 2005 | 5:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
FOR THE PAST 12 months, Intel and AMD have praised the merits of their respective dual-core CPU designs and focused on thread-level parallelism as the key to better perfomance, while gradually distancing themselves from the old "clock speed" performance standard. Although Intel beat AMD by a handful of weeks when it came time to formally launch dual-core desktop systems, AMD was the first company to offer dual-core solutions across the server, workstation, and desktop markets. With dual-core CPUs firmly established, neither manufacturer has been talking much about single-core processors in the workstation market--but the high-end single-core processor still has a hand or two to play before it makes a final exit. AMD's recent stealth launch of the Opteron 254 at 2.8GHz ensures that the limelight stays focused on their dual-core products, while the Opteron 254 offers an intriguing option for buyers caught on the fence between lower-speed, dual-core and higher-clocked, single-core processors.
