AMD Opteron 165 Toledo overclocking

Posted on Friday, November 11 2005 @ 09:27:44 CET by

AMD has quietly released 10 new Socket 939 Opterons on the market in single and dual core variety. AMDZone overclocked the lowest cost dual core AMD CPU on the market, the Opteron 165 with a full 1MB L2 cache per core.

During the Summer the Athlon 64 Venice and San Diego cores were the overclocking rage, and we tested several with excellent results. Now Fall is upon us, and something strange has happened. An Opteron has started taking all the overclocking limelight. This is no normal Opteron after all however. This is a Socket 939 Opteron meant for workstations, but of course compatible with Socket 939 motherboards, and sporting a full 1MB of L2 cache whether single or dual core. Eager to see what these CPUs could do performance wise and overclocking we picked up the Opteron 165 you see pictured above, and quickly got to overclocking. You can check it out over here.
