    Default AMD Opteron 64bits X AMD Athlon 64bits

    Which is the difference in the performance of the IV using the Opteron 64bits and the Athlon 64bits ?

    From what i know of is that the opteron is made for server and therefore has a total other infrastructure as a workstation. If you are looking for a new configuration for inventor I would first look at the athlon vs athlon X2 or even tha athlon FX dual core.

    The thing is with AMD that they don't make 32 bit processors anymore - only the 64bits , but present software mainly is still 32 bits - and it will take a few more years till most programms are 64 bits. Inventor is now multitreathing so a dual core processor won't have much effekt on inventor alone. But the AMD FX is a lot compared with the INTEL Xeon and performance of the FX should be a bit better.

    I've been running Inv 11 Pro on an AMD Athlon X2 4200+, and I've got to say, the performance I'm getting is pretty damn good.
