Default Opteron 6128 8 cores, why so cheap ?

I know it's only 2,0 hgz, but 8 cores, I wonder because it will be perfect for a VM build, because core are more important than tread

You know that almost makes me want to buy 4 of these and a quad processor board. Would actually be cheaper than an SR-2 w/ a pair of hexacores. And not having to overclock to get performance would be such a nice feeling.

I heard first generation dozer for desktop is basically a slightly modified Phenom II core to put the videocard on it, so nothing too spectacular.
