View Full Version : Opteron 6200 / 4200 for LW render performance

Can anyone comment on the performance of these latest chips in LW?

…currently displaying only benchmarks for older chips than the 6200 / 4200 series. However, the 6174 , 6168 numbers at the top look quite good. Though numbers from elsewhere on the web seem to not be so high. There seem to be wildly different benchmark results for the 6200 / 4200 series around the web.

At the end of the day, I'm trying to put together a cost effective render machine, hopefully significantly exceeding the performance of intel 2600k / 2700k / 3770k setups.

Opteron 6200 has 16 cores… Chip costs approx $500. Can use up to 4 per Motherboard.
Opteron 4280 has 8 cores… Chip costs approx $255. Can use 2 per Motherboard I think.
