Initial reviews on AMD Opteron from Ace

Ace's Hardware reviews the AMD Opteron (the new 64-bit chip that can run 32-bit x86 code unmodified) this month.

Extensive benchmarks and a lot of background information. In the end, they think the chip family is very promising, but the 1.8GHz version can still fall behind a 2.8GHz XEON in some cases.
