DailyTech writes we'll see new AMD Opteron processors and price cuts tomorrow. AMD will release the new 90nm F3 stepping dual-core Opteron x220-series and the x218 HE-series.
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.
