AMD Opteron 6274

Cores16More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed2.2GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameInterlagosThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date14 Nov 2011 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP115WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache768KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache16384KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache16MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography32nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket G34The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Opteron 6274 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Opteron 6274 has exceptional performance. Its 16 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz provide mediocre processing speeds but allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from AMD.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 32 nanometers, the Opteron 6274 is quite efficiently built, although with a Thermal Design Power of 115W it requires a large amount of power to run.
