i remember there was a dude on TPU who made gaming rigs with opterons am i correct?

how well do these perform in games?

an opteron will game just fine.
dont expect any oc options on a tyan board though.
i think moving enterprise class chips away from consumer sockets have ended the days of "enthusiasts" with opteron based systems.

I game on a opteron 6128 2ghz octo... on an asus KGPE-D16 board... 8gb of ram and a 6970...

handles bf3 just fine at high/max settings.... (2048x1152)
my cpu is actually bored while gaming... about 40% usage...and it uses all the cores...

These new chips being higher clocked might do better...

correct... overclock only available on supermicro boards... with custom hacked bios... (clockgen chip has been found) :D

Or if you have an ExtraSpicey chip
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1780855 :D

but I would expect similar clock to clock ipc regressions between the 6100 and 6200 series chips...but with more cores and higher clocks... they will overcome it.

I mean ... AMD doesn't seem very proud of these chips... $686 for a 2.2ghz 16core?

Overclocking ?

[quote="Patriot, post: 2455458"]correct... overclock only available on supermicro boards... with custom hacked bios... (clockgen chip has been found) :D

Patrion could post some detailed info about the overclocking ? at least on what forum is that info ?

Do you also have the reboot issues some other folks have had, any idea if the new 62** would run on your Asus, or if Asus has something new lined up to replace your Asus G34.
Also suggestions of what would overclock better the 6262HE or what other 16 core in dual socket config.

Still don't get why AMD claims this is server cpu's as Patriot / others uses it as gaming cpu's for a long time already.
Compared to Sandy-crapEe cpu's this is 62** is a bargain. Would love to see benchies vs Sandy-crapEe's for the same price point / bang for the buck point.

It is not the preferred gaming cpu... and yes I have the reboot issue ... but not as severe as others (randomly maybe once a week)... until I stick an IL dodeca in there... then it gets bad... within an hour or so... depending on load.
