Actually, with AMDs recent price updates, the dual core Opterons and
Athlon64 X2's are pretty well the same price, given same clocspeed and
cache size.

For example the AMD OSA175 PIB/FAN (2.2GHz, 1MB cache per core) is $654,
while the A64 4400 X2 is $645..

Plus, the new Opteron 1xx family are coming out in Socket 939
immediately, so frankly the only differentiation will be capability of
using registered ECC RAM.
