AMD Opteron 175


$200.00 Released May, 2005

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Noticeable improvements in 3D rendering performance over single-core processors. Socket 939 fits conveniently into older systems in need of an upgrade. Receptive to overclocking, can hit 3GHz.

The Cons:Somewhat pricey compared to other similar Athlon X2 processors. Navigating overclocking settings can be somewhat tricky, voltages must be correct.

The AMD Opteron 175 is a mid-range, although slightly outdated, processor for use in 1-way servers and workstations. Although AMD's current server CPUs offer at least four cores, the 'Denmark'-based Opteron 175 features only two, but still incorporates 64-bit technology, as well as an integrated memory controller and HyperTransport.
