AMD Introdces Three New Dual-Core Opteron Processors
AMD announced three new models in the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor family for one-way to eight-way x86 servers and workstations. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 880 for up to eight-way, 16-core enterprise-class servers and Model 280 for high performance dual-processor workstations and servers are immediately available. Model 180 for one-processor, two-core servers and workstations is expected to be available within 30 days.
HP added the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors across its portfolio of AMD Opteron processor-based ProLiant servers and workstations. Model 880 will add to the four-processor/eight-core HP ProLiant DL 585 and BL45p, while Model 280 will offer customers performance increases in the two-processor/four-core ProLiant DL385 and DL145 G2, plus the BL25p and BL35p server blades. HP will also match Model 280 with the performance-class HP xw9300 workstation that features multi-processing capabilities and support for dual PCI-Express x16 graphics.
Sun Microsystems is the first OEM to design and develop systems with the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor SE Model 280, and will be shipping servers equipped with these highest-performing x64 processors next month.
The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 880 is priced at $2,649 in 1,000-unit quantities and the Model 280 is priced at $1,299 in 1,000-unit quantities. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 180, for single-processor workstations and servers, is scheduled to be available within 30 days and will be priced at $799 in 1,000-unit quantities. With the addition of the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor models, the prices of two dual-core processor models within each series overlap with current single-core processors, making the shift to dual-core technology an easy decision for customers.
