Dave Graham has posted images of an AMD Opteron 2218 processor running on an ASUS L1N64-SLI motherboard, which is designed for AMD's Quad FX platform. The motherboard BIOS detects the processor correctly and functions properly. The ASUS L1N64-SLI is based around NVIDIA's nForce 680a SLI MCP but it is detected as the nForce 570 SLI, revision A1. It also appears that the system is using standard DDR2-667 MHz memory instead of registered ECC memory and yet there are images of the system passing Windows Vista's memory diagnostic tool to prove the stability claim. With compatibility with AMD's Opteron 2200-series processors, the pricey ASUS L1N64-SLI may just be an option for more budget-conscious buyers. When comparing the cheapest options (Opteron 2210 vs. Athlon 64 FX-70) the user can save approximately $150 per processor. In terms of memory savings, there is about a $50 difference for low-end modules (according to Newegg).
