Hi everybody,

I have the opportunity to aquire an HP workstation at a good price - the CPU
in that machine is an AMD Dual Core Opteron 1210 (1.8Ghz with 2MB L2 cache).
Does anybody know what the  Intel Core 2 Duo CPU would be that has a similar
processing power as this Opteron? Application is 3D graphics.

I believe that the closest in the Core 2
Duo would be the E4300. The nice thing
about the E4300 is it's overclockability.
Many folks are getting it into the
2.7-3.0ghz range at pretty much stock
vcore voltages and stock cooling.

Did some more googling and looks to me the Opteron 12xx range are just
versions of the Athlon 64 X2 xx00+  range. Some report mentioned the Opteron
1218 to be equivalent to the Athlon 64 X2 5200+. Based on that would make
the the 1210 a 3600+ eqivalent. Hardly earth shattering for something
wanting to be a "workstation".
