AMD schedules to launch two 2-way Opteron (Barcelona) server processors on September 10 this year, according to sources at server makers.

The Opteron 2348 and 2350 will have core frequencies of 1.9GHz and 2.0GHz and will be priced at US$320 and US$390 in 1000-unit tray quantities, respectively. In October, AMD will launch the 2.2GHz Opteron 2354 with 95W TDP and a price of US$610 in 1000-unit tray quantities, however this processor should actually appear in the channel later this month, noted the sources.

The Opteron 2300 series will include Opteron 2340, 2350, 2352, 2354, 2356, 2358 and 2360. Models at frequencies higher than 2.0GHz are expected to launch in the fourth quarter, according to an earlier announcement by AMD.

I knew they were going to be expensive but DAMN! @ 2.2 GHz those things better be unbelievable. $610 for 1000.... so retail will be $750 to $800.... Phenoms are going to need to do WAY better than that!

Does these CPU's have four cores or they just two cores ,it seems pretty high for just two cores unless they are faster then the Core 2 Duo and $400 for 2gigs sound high .

Well I suppose the need to stop hemorrhaging cash and start making some money. This processor is make or break for AMD.

These are opterons, not phenoms, the prices won't exactly be comparable to desktop processors. Really the initial releases are mainly targeted towards the server market, just like with the original opteron. The 2348 will probably be a quite attractive price due to its 69w tdp and only 100MHz clock deficit. It's all about performance per watt in the server segment these days.

Aside from that, traditionally 1000-unit prices are fairly comparable to retail pricing. Unless there is some kind of shortage of course. I have no doubt that Phenoms will be priced inline with their core 2 counterparts.

2.2Ghz for over $600? They better be amazing clock for clock if they plan on competing with this:

The new AMD I hope has something to offer because if low power is what you want then the Quad-core Xeon L5410 clocked at 2.33gigs with 12megs of L2 cache priced at $320 and a TDP of 50watts sounds pretty good.

ohwow. 12mbs of L2 caches. Isn't this just getting a little bit ridiculous? Mmm lots of cache to replace ****ty architecture.

Tell us the truth. You work as a clown in a circus, don't you ?

****ty architecture ? Yeah. Right. All us with Core 2 Duo's are really crying for how much our architecture sucks... :rolleyes:

Damn this architecture.

I'm going to email Intel and tell them how inferior this architecture is.



Dear Intel,

Your architecture is bad. You should get new architecture programming guys or something because they suck. I am an experienced linux user, so I understand the inner workings of CPUs. I design CPU architectures all the time that are better than yours, so I know what I am talking about.

Here is an example of one I designed yesterday in my spare time:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=27192&stc=1&d=1187172209

And don't even think about copying my design. I intentionally designed a flaw in the CPU cache so no one could profit from my genius. Only I know how to fix it.

If you want to improve your architecture Intel, call me up after you get bought out by AMD and I may work for you for a million dollars a day designing architectures.

Sincerely,
Not an AMD Fanboy

AMD is going down big time. Barcelona will not be any faster then Core 2.
