AMD Commemorates Earth Day with Low Power Chips
AMD celebrated Earth Day yesterday with the debut of two quad-core chips for servers, both with low power consumption levels. The new chips form part of the Opteron range of processors from the company.
Targeted at datacenters that require high chip density with even higher energy efficiency levels, both the Opteron 2373 EE and the Opteron 2377 EE operate at just 40W power. The new chips are based on AMD’s Shanghai server architecture and fit into motherboards with dual-sockets. While the 2373 EE is clocked at 2.1GHz, the 2377 EE is set for 2.3GHz; both processors come with 6MB of L3 cache.
AMD has refrained from releasing prices of the Opteron EE chips, but keeping in mind the $450 price of the Opteron 2379 HE, the new chips can be expected to fall in a similar price range.

Hi, just thought i'd also introduce my self to the community, this seems like such a great forum, shame about some of the restrictions but i can purely understand why and it's a good reason too :).

my name is kyle, and since this is a computing forum i guess i could introduce my computer, :P

i named her erm... let's call her, (having to think now); i shall name it larry :P

specs of it are:

Intel core 2 duo e6750 @ 2.66ghz
2gb @ 800mhz standard cheapo ddr2 ram
MSI MS 7357 G33 motherboard
Saphire ATI Radeon 4670 512mb
running windows 7 leaked beta 7077

looking at ways to upgrade my computer, any suggestions, i was thinking of an i7 920 with a nvidia GTX 260 with 6gb of ddr3 ram, antec 900 2 possibly, not thought of a board yet, what do we think?

and also does anyone think £400 is a fair price for my machine, because i was planning on selling it to contribute towards the new machine, i don't have a job and have a small income of £80 per month ya see

Welcome to OC3D Kyle. :)

I see you mention that you currently have £80pm. Perhaps you need to think whether it is worth spending all your money on a new rig or if it could be put to better use.

I don't want to deter you from building a new rig if that is indeed what you have your heart set on doing, but as you don't have the money flooding in it may be more sensible to make some minor upgrades such as the memory and graphics card. Also you should be able to overclock that CPU to at least 3.2ghz which will help with games.

What do you use the computer for mostly?

Indeed i have got my cpu to 3.2ghz and it works perfectly, but my machine is getting old-ish at 1 and a half years,

I mainly use it for games really, and now that i've had a taste of crysis where my system gets around 8-20fps overclocked i got a thirst for replacing it with one that can actually run games now and in future, with a decent looking case which i can make modifications to, LED's for example to make it stand out
