the Opteron 850 has quad processing ability, it does what HT on a P4 does, but emulates 4 processors. when you have a dual Opteron 850, buth with quad processin turned on, you have 2 physical, but 8 virtual processors

yeah but programs have to be written to take advantage of the dual processors or so I was lead to believe anyway

I'm not sure exactly which one I would choose from. I only say that because I haven't tried out AMD's latest line of processors compared to Intel's. Of course, by the time I get another computer with an AMD processor, this post will be long gone!!!

They are both great, but most bang for the buck is AMD all the way.

Yeah, I kinda realized that after I got the CPU in my specs...oh well. I'll just wait. No big hurry for me.
