AMD Opteron 170 Denmark Dual-Core 2.0GHz Socket 939 110W Processor OSA170CDBOX

  • 1000MHz
  • 90nm Denmark 110W
  • 2 x 1MB L2 Cache
ICON Loading...

The evolutionary AMD Opteron 170 Dual-core processor provides a highly scalable architecture that delivers next-generation performance as well as a flexible upgrade path from 32- to 64-bit computing for any workstation and server platform and is a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).

The AMD Opteron 170 Socket 939 processor operates at 2.0GHz with 2 x 1MB (2MB total) L2 Cache for significantly enhanced overall system performance and incredible efficiency in complex computing environments such as CAD, graphics and scientific workstation platforms or high-end gaming desktop systems.

  • newegg AMD64 Dual-core Technology AMD64 is designed to enable simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With dual-core technology there are two complete processor cores in one physical package running at the same frequency to deliver TRUE multi-tasking power, allowing users to switch from one program to another without pausing for the computer to catch up and reducing annoying processing pauses.
  • newegg Integrated DDR DRAM Memory Controller The AMD Opteron 170 Dual-core processor is integrated with a DDR DRAM memory controller capable of supporting ECC DRAM. The integrated memory controller changes the way the processor accesses main memory, resulting in increased bandwidth, reduced memory latencies, and enhanced processor performance. Usage of DDR400/PC3200 memory will provide the processor with up to 6.4GB/s memory bandwidth.
  • newegg HyperTransport Technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. With HT technology the AMD Opteron 170 Dual-core processor enjoys 1000MHz system bus speeds.
  • newegg Enhanced Virus Protection All AMD processors equipped with AMD64 technology are Enhanced Virus Protection-enabled. Enhanced virus protection acts as a preventative measure causing viruses to be localized, short-lived, and non-contagious, eventually being flushed from system memory.

5 out of 5 eggsNice 3GHz Chip

Pros: Got mine running dual SP 32M stable on air at 3030MHz (10 X 303) with only 1.44 volts vcore. Lots more under the hood with higher vcore.

Cons: Had to use a 166 divider in order to run my RAM at a 1T command rate.

Other Thoughts: LCBQE 0722RPAW stepping.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Overclocker

Pros: I bought this chip to upgrade from my 3700. I must say on factory settings this was actually a downgrade. But once I overclocked it, it proved to be the better chip. I overclocked this chip to 2.9gigs on stock voltage. I'm going to try for 3.0 gigs soon but i'm sure I won't have a problem getting there. My AMD 3700 could only be clocked to 2.6 gigs before my system went haywire. I can't comment on stock cooling or on the heating issue since I used the artic freezer pro right off the back. Not to mention that I have it clocked to 2.9 gigs. But I will say this on idle it stays at 41 and at load it does not past 50. I know that's not good enough for some but it's not bad when you think about how high It's overclocked. I'm sure with watercooling you can really take this thing to a whole other level.

Cons: Not one that I can think of. maybe the heat thing but i'm not sure about that.

Other Thoughts: Great chip with great potential and a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed so far.

Pros: - 10x multiplier
- 2mb total L2 cache
- Much more efficient than my 4200+
-easy overclock

Cons: - Runs HOT, 47C with my all copper, zalman 9500 (fan on high setting)

Other Thoughts: I get much better performance with this processor (these processors?) than I've had with any other, even it's lower clock cycle.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for extending the life of socket 939

Pros: This processor replaced an aging 3200+ in a scientific computing workstation running Windows XP 64-bit edition. It was a drop in replacement and required one reboot to update the cpu's and computer type. This is a pretty cheap way to extend the life of the old socket 939 before the upgrade to quad cores.

Cons: The stock heat sink is a bit larger than the older Athlon64 Processor-In-Box versions, mainly with the larger heat pipes. For some motherboards, if there are capacitors near the socket, it may not sit properly because it's too big. Not a problem for me, but may be for someone else.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Not Bad!!

Pros: This thing is fast if you have the right mobo and know what your doing. I had the pleasure of just dropping it in to see just what a performance boost that I could get on an old 939 socket Mobo. I used (PCMark5) and with the org. chip (AMD 3800) it scored a 900. With this little gem It went right to 4950 over all score. Huge jump. There is other factors that helped that score. GPU and Zalman 9500 fan. Good chip and great buy.

Cons: I have none. Give me some more time to stress it out to the max and we will see.

5 out of 5 eggsNICE UPGRADE

Pros: Swapped out a 3200+ for this. HUGE difference in load times, no hanging when switching between programs. Very satisfied with stock HSF.

Cons: The stock fan is a bit loud but enabling Cool n' Quiet solves this.

Other Thoughts: Haven't OC'd yet, but planning to in the very near future.

5 out of 5 eggsKeep your 939

Pros: A fantastic way to extend the life of a 939 platform. Don't listen to anyone who tells you to move away from 939 due to its age or because of the newest products. Unless your needs dictate something better, save your money.

I am stable on stock volts at 3.0 ghz. If I had DDR500, a better mobo, and water cooling, there is certainly more headroom.

Cons: People who type "not really a con, but..." in this field.

Other Thoughts: LCBQE 0722RPAW stepping
