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.

Hopefully something so cryptic and confusing that Intels response is just bewildering and comical.... Seriously, how hard is the average consumer going to research the available products just to figure out what the hell they are / compatible with/ etc. The situation with RAM, for another example, is just as nutty.
