As one can see, the two systems were not configured the same. The Xeon
isn't even the latest architecture. The Xeon had the older, slower, bus
speed (533... come on, been 800 forever now). The older Xeons had 1/2 the
L2 cache. Pretty ridiculous comparison.

Top Intel and Top AMD processor are very similar in CPU benchmarking.
 
 
 

1. HP Single Opteron 2.2 ghz server is faster than HP dual Xeon 3.2 ghz server

2. Dual Opteron 2.2 Ghz performance.

I'm being offered a Dual Opteron 2.2Ghz box at about $300. The machine
comes with a SCSI controller/drive and with 3 GB RAM, but is capable of
handling up to 16GB. The machine is in good working condition and I'm
thinking that at $300 it's almost a giveaway. I'm thinking I may get
the box as a "toy" and install an x64 version on it. Anyone here
familiar with dual Opeterons? Are those dual 2.2 Ghz worth a try?
