fx-60 x2? What article is that?

The best dual cores that money can buy are currently Opterons.


That's a freaking expensive rig btw...

Ya, but it kinda helps to signify AMD's dual core chips now. I see some people refer to the opteron 165-180 chips as x2 opterons. Helps people who don't know it's a dual core.

WHy aould you pay $1200 for the FX-60 when you could pay $300-400 for an opteron 165 or 170 and overclock them to FX-65 speeds?

X2 is just a name. FX-60 is dual core but it isn't CALLED X2, but you were just joking around... i hope.
