More high end server components on the way
Tomorrow AMD is expected to release its new x220-series and x218 HE-series Opteron processors. Both series are 90nm revision "F3" stepping dual-core processors.
Like other Opteron families, the 8000-family and 2000-family will utilize the Socket 1207 interface while the 1000-family Opterons will use the Socket AM2 interface. The x220-series processors feature a 2.8GHz core clock and 1MB L2 cache per core. AMD's guidance lists this CPU inside a 95W thermal power envelope.
The x218 HE, or high efficiency, series processors are low-TDP versions of the dual-core x218 processors already available today. The new processors feature 2.6GHz cores and 1MB L2 cache-per-core, but operate at less than 68W TDP.
The new revision "F3" is also featured on the Athlon 64 FX 70-series and the 3.0GHz Athlon 64 X2 6000+. AMD launched its
FX 70-series processors back in November 2006
but the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ is still under embargo for several weeks --
not that you can't buy it at Newegg today
The Opteron 2220 SE series processor
entered the retail channel
several months ago
, but with low availability and high prices. AMD claims the Opteron 8220, 2220 and 1220 (non-SE versions) will launch with an MSRP of $1,500, $700 and $550 respectively. Corporate guidance also claims the Opteron 8218 HE, 2218 HE and 1218 HE will launch with MSRPs of $1,340, $610 and $430 respectively. The new MSRPs should bring the price down on any Opterons that are already in the channel.
The x220 series features the same memory controller as the FX 70-series enthusiast processors.
previously demonstrated that
AMD's FX 70-series motherboard will quite happily accept Opteron processors
and run non-registered memory. This trick has no practical application yet as FX 70-series processors are considerably cheaper than the Opteron counterparts, but it does suggest the opposite possibility -- that AMD FX 70-series processors will work in Opteron 2200-series motherboards.
