The little Opteron is all grown up now
We just caught a glimpse at the newest AMD roadmap -- which was disappointedly void of
other than some odd indicators that we will see technology demonstrations this year.
On the other hand, the roadmap does show off AMD's newest 3.0GHz Opteron 256 and 3.0GHz Opteron 856. Both new processors are
based CPUs with 1MB L2 cache and carrying the A5BL Revision E OPN.
AMD also added plans for two dual core 2.8GHz Opterons on the roadmap. The Opteron 290 and 890 will be the newest and perhaps last additions to the Socket 940 Opteron lineup. Both chips are based on the A6CD Socket E revisions.
Interestingly enough, AMD also just recently changed its
, which will show up on these new chips as well. Do not expect these Opterons to support DDR2; only the upcoming
LGA Socket F
Opterons from AMD will do that for multiprocessor servers.

the special 2.8 ghz opterons that sun got for a few servers already had a 130watt tdp. they were basically normal 2.6ghz ones that were over volted on the old stepping.
witht his new stepping i still would not be surprised if they had the 130 tdp which is getting up there in heat. the fx60 and fx62 i think are in the 130 watt range as well.
