"At less than $6,000 per dual-processor server, the 325 offers an inexpensive migration path to high-performance, 64-bit data-center computing. With the street price of a 1-GHz Itanium 2 processor at around $7,500 and the price of a 2-GHz Opteron 246 processor at $800, it's hard not to see value in the 325's Opteron platform." - Steven Hill  - Network Computing 11/25/03
Articles and Reports are below
"The Opteron platforms, the e325s have been received with tremendous enthusiasm because the platform is tremendously price performance effective compared to some classes of other 64-bit technologies"
Dave Turek IBM 03/04
