If it really is as good as it sounds, I think AMD are going to be a silencer's favourite for a while. But how much will it cost?
According to Matbe.com
, here are the expected prices:
- Opteron 265 : 851€
- Opteron 275 : 1299€
- Opteton 865 : 1514€
- Opteron 875 : 2649€
Next April 21 for the second birthday of the Opteron, AMD will release dual cores processors for servers. The Opteron 265 and 865 will be clocked at 1.8 GHz, 2.0 GHz for the 270/870 and 2.2 GHz for the 275/875 versions. The Opteron 265 and 275 will cost $851 and $1299, and the 865 and 875 $1514 and $2649. The dual core Opteron 265 clocked at 1.8 GHz will be more expensive than two Opteron 244 1.8 GHz ($209 reach) for example and it is the same thing for the rest of the range.
Opteron Dual Core Power consumption:
Now we have to hope that the pricing policy will be different for the Athlon 64 dual core range expected in Q3, and that AMD only takes advantage of the dual core compared to the single core in terms of processor density per rack to increase the bill.
