Dual AMD Opteron 252 vs Dual XEON 3.06
OK, currently I've the following server:
Dual CPU XEON 3.06Ghz w/ Hyperthreading

I've some problems with support so decided to move away from there and change my provider, so far found the following one (server4sale):
Dual AMD Opteron 252
2 x AMD Opteron 252 w/1MB L2 cache
My question would be, which of them is better and why? I've viewed some benchmarks and noticed that amd 252 beats even d.xeon 3.2, but not sure if it had 4 simulated cpu's or two as far I understand 252 got two, right?
DjiXas are you using for Download or Database?
There is advantage on bot server also disadvantage Bot Intel and AMD,
Hm... Basically it's for PPC Search Engine, it gets millions of searches monthly and using mysql databse... so not sure... I guess both then?
i would get the Opteron 252 with no doubt.
Opteron will far better job then intel for mysql. i would recommend Opteron for mysql Job..
And in downloads ("traffic?") intel beats amd?
Opteron 252 even beats Xeon 3.6 in most of the tests.
take a look at
Don't worry about the logical cpu differences between the Intel and AMD. The Opteron is the cpu of choice.
Can't we all just get along
