AMD Opteron Socket F delayed to August

Posted on Saturday, Jun 17 2006 @ 00:40 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
DigiTimes heard AMD has delayed the launch of the Socket F Opteron platform to August 1, instead of July 11.
AMD declined to comment on the report, stating that the launch schedule of the Socket F CPU has never been announced.

The delayed availability of AMD's Socket-F Opteron processors is part of the vendor's carefully-crafted launch strategy, as the next-generation dual-core Opteron is arriving between Intel's current 65nm dual-core Dempsey and Woodcrest offerings and the upcoming quad-core Clovertown, whose launch is slated to take place in the first quarter of 2007, the sources indicated.
