Opterons don't use the 939. They use the 940 package.

Correct DougH.. opterons are only 940, athlon64 and athlon64 FX are
939 at the moment !

If you want to know about new processors.. try searchin
alt.comp.hardware.amd for 'dual core processors' .. I've not verified
what was said - but I read the post and it seems like AMD want to
'glue' two opterons together... now that is new news! (well its at
least a week old)
But then again.. on the internet news travels faster than ever before!
including rumours! cant blame these guys for wanting to seem cool in a
nerdy newsgroup...oops! I shouldnt say nerds... we're 'professionals'
nowadays
