AMD Opteron 850, 250 and 150 — trio for 2/4-way servers

AMD today announced new additions to its AMD Opteron processor family — Models 850, 250 and 150 — for two-way and four-way servers and workstations. According to Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager of the Microprocessor Business Unit, AMD, the product line will be further enhanced by rapid transition to 90 nanometer manufacturing. The company has already begun initial production of 90nm AMD64 processors, and is planning to begin shipping 90nm processors for revenue in the third quarter.

As it is mentioned in the press release, AMD Opteron processor-based Sun Fire V20z server continues to set new standards for two-processor server performance. The Sun Fire V20z server, equipped with the new AMD Opteron processor Model 250, currently holds the record as the fastest two CPU secure web server (Sun Fire V20z server, powered by two 2.4GHz AMD Opteron processors, has achieved SPECweb99_SSL result of 2,500 conforming connections). This is in addition to achieving a 37 percent improvement in the price/performance ratio over the nearest competing 32-bit system based on the SPECjAppServer2002 benchmark (Two Sun Fire V20z servers, each equipped with two AMD Opteron processors Model 248 2.2 GHz processors, delivered a result of 690.13 TOPS@DualNode, 101.10 US$/TOPS@DualNode for the SPECjAppServer2002 benchmark). The SPECjAppServer2002 is a client/server benchmark for measuring the performance of Java Enterprise Application Servers in a complete, end-to-end Web application. The two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark simulates full business workloads with complete order, delivery, and invoice processing and represents the critical tasks performed in real-world e-business environments.

The AMD Opteron processor Model 250 is priced at $851 in 1,000-unit quantities; the AMD Opteron processor Model 850 will be priced at $1,514 in 1,000-unit quantities; and the AMD Opteron processor Model 150 will be priced at $637 in 1,000-unit quantities. Today valid prices are as follows:
