Ace's Hardware has taken a look at some of the elements of AMD's Opteron performance presentation other than the SPECint and SPECfp scores. Most notable is a discussion of Opteron's memory bandwidth in multiple-CPU configurations, where extra processors can directly access each others' memory via HyperTransport.
The Ace's article also points to information suggesting that a revision of the Opteron processor will include support for DDR II, which should further boost the platform's memory performance.
