Wow! :shock: I would love to see its PPD/$ of CPU. Anyone have any F@H results with these things?

Yeah I Googled that and found some guy getting 14 minute checkpoints on a 1760 pointer (P2653). Ummmm, not impressive at all. My OC'd E6400 is running faster than that. :?

According to fahinfo.org, you can get around 255 PPD per gigahertz per core from the Phenom. That's 1020 PPD per gigahertz. In Europe, a locked Phenom costs around Euro 80 per Ghz. An unlocked phenom comes in around Euro 90 per Ghz at its nominal clock speed, but will probably (evidence, anyone?) OC to a much higher level.
Taking the lower number as a safe banker, you get 13 PPD per Euro.

By comparison, the best Core 2 Duo score is 325 PPD per Ghz. I cannot identify which CPU this was on, and the comparison I offer is based on the Conroe. Here we have 317 PPD per Ghz per core, or 634 PPD per Ghz. Prices in Europe vary from around Euro 40/Ghz at the 21x0 end of the scale, through to Euro 60/Ghz at the E6750 (which is cheaper than Aris' E6400). If you use the low end price, this gives you a nominal 16PPD per Euro; if you take the high end price, the answer is about 10 PPD per Euro.

Of Course we are ignoring overclockability. I have read about people clocking their 2160 to nearly 4Ghz (probably members of the loud pc review team), but I have as yet no anecdotal evidence on the AMD Quads.

Yes, I've seen that. It has a mutiplier of 7, like the E6300. I'm sure Intel is aware of people overclocking, and the multiplier appears to be a factor in the price. The only way to get this up to 3.5GHz is to set the FSB to 500, that's a bit of a stretch. :shock:

The limit is 8 - I am running my FSB at 400. Which is easy. I am waiting until my wife's 2160 is up and folding to see whether I can run the FSB at 3500/9. If I could do that in my head, I could have gone on working as a CPA ROFL.
