When replacing your Socket 939 mobo isn't an option, the Opteron 165 processor is a great choice to boost system performance and extend usability. This AMD64 based dual core processor runs at a respectable 1.8GHz and has 1MB of L2 cache per processor. AMD64 technology delivers peak performance with today’s 32-bit apps and has a built in upgrade path to the 64-bit apps that are coming.
Direct Connect Architecture drastically reduces performance-owering bottlenecks. It works with the HyperTransport technology and integrated memory controller to speed up data transfers and keep the pipelines full so your system doesn’t waste clock cycles waiting for data.
- AMD64 Dual-core TechnologyAMD64 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.
- HyperTransport TechnologyHyperTransport 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 165 Dual-core processor enjoys 1000MHz system bus speeds.
- Enhanced Virus ProtectionAll 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.
