Opteron 240 and Opteron 242 boxes already seen in Japanese retail!
Today we got to know that Tokyo shops already offer recently announced 64-bit Opteron processors. It was nice this release wasnít paper only, so I guess we should expect worldwide sales closely. Itís also interesting that chips arrived for retail in box versions.
In general there are two new CPUs available now: 1.4GHz Opteron 240 and 1.6GHz Opteron 242. We donít know why 1.8GHz Opteron 244 is not for sale yet, whether itís low yield or high price...
News from Japan offer photos of Opteron boxes and retail prices. It was interesting to look at the standard coolers for these as well.
So, Opteron 240 costs •38800 in Japan (about $323), Opteron 242 •95800 ($798). Well, this does correspond to AMDís $283 and $690, I guess (mind the Japanese retail specificity).
