AMD responds to Woodcrest with new Opterons

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

"AMD today officially launched its "next-generation" Opteron processors. The new CPUs come in two flavors: Socket AM2 for the 1200 series processors, and the new Socket F for the 2200 and 8200 series CPUs." "At the top AMD's new lineup are the 8200 SE, 2200 SE, and 1220 SE. They run at 3.0GHz and have 1MB of L2 cache per core. The 8220 and 2220 use 667MHz DDR2 while the 1220 takes 800MHz DDR2. The three CPUs have a similar Thermal Design Power: 120W for the 8220 and 2220 and 125W for the 1220. The top of AMD's lineup is expensive, too. In quantities of 1,000, the 8220 SE will sell for $2,649, the 2220 SE goes for $1,165, and the 1220 SE is $899. At the low end of the range is the 1.8GHz 2210, which costs $255."

Note from the Nerd: Well, I for one like the looks of this, especially the fact that the sockets will also support quad-core CPUs later on! Watch out Xeon!
