    Inteli-idiots & resident bashtards, Are you paying attention?

    AMD promotional stuff:

    The new AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processor delivers the world's highest core density, lets users host more virtual machines per server, handle more database users and solve more complex HPC applications with fewer nodes and less power - offering a better option for the hyper-efficient, virtualized, cloud-ready world.

    Performance for Data Centers

    84% greater performance for HPC than the competition1
    Up to 160% more cores2 to handle more VMs per platform and minimize datacenter space
    Low cost per VM lets you deploy fewer physical servers1 as business needs scale up

    Scalability for Virtualization

    73% more memory throughput3 to scale as your workloads grow

    Economics for the Cloud

    Unparalleled efficiency with 1/2 the power-per-core4
    Requires 2/3 less floor space5
    1/3 to 2/3 lower platform price6

    • And the last place I would turn for credible relative performance data would be the manufacturer, whether that is Intel or AMD. But you AMD fan boys lap it up as if it were a puddle of pee from Jerry's spigot.

      On the other hand, let's check out what the independent industry analysts are saying about the new Opterons:

      "It also suggests to us that Intel’s Romley server family will have significantly better performance than AMD’s Bulldozer-based Opteron server products."

      Over on ZDNet UK the latest Dell server using Opteron 6200 chips came up short to both the recent Dell and HP Xeon servers, too.
