The new forces on board- AMD Opteron1218 AM2
Do you have any recall that the burning hot AMD 939 Opteron series?
It has been caused a shopping rush by its 1mb cache memory, a server level
and the wide range of overclocking ability.

It is a big sale for 939 Opteron 144/146 and the dual core model 165 since
this month.
That makes many 939 users and peoples who want to keep their AGP graphic
are trying to upgrade their systems.

I have just brought 3 Opteron144¡K

Distributor¡¦s goods

The overclock ability of these 3 Opteron144 single-core above are quite
In 1.5V above, they almost reach 2.9G~3G in a steady status.

Get to the point; unfortunately, it¡¦s almost 5 months since AM2 launched into
But, it¡¦s seldom to hear any information about Opteron Server series.
(AM2 Opteron CPU has some relative news in media few days ago.)

This time, I try to test Opteron 1218 AM2 version,
1mb cache with dual cores and the default MHz is 2.6G

Test platform:
CPU:AMD AM2 Opteron1218
DRAM:Mushkin Tuner XP Redline
HD:Seagate 7200.5 120GB
POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply

Default 2600MHz

Performance test by Sandra and Everest

PI 1m and CPU Mark(coz test with an old model HD and a ¡§mess up¡¨ system,
PI will be a little slower)

overclocked to 3014MHz
Performance test by Sandra and Everest


quite stably when 3G Dual-core in 1.488V

Of course, the result above is not the limit of 1218.
It¡¦s possible to have a higher clocking.

although, AMD¡¦s performance are slightly fall behind, but if all series have a
better Cost/ performance ratio, AMD still the best choice for mid-range &
value consumers.

I agree, S939 Opteron were almost too good to be true;
