Interesting.  What were the exact configurations of the hardware?
Unlike most other hardware the opterons can be significantly slower
based on the configuration.

Apparently there is a shortage of PC2700 ECC Registered memory.  Did your
test opterons have PC2100 or PC2700?

Did each opteron have 2 matched dimms (so 4 for a dual cpu)?  I've seen
duals with only 1 of the 2 memory banks populated.

Why did you use Intel's compiler for the Xeons, but gcc for the Opterons?
