AMD rolls out its first dual-core processors: Opteron and Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core

Posted on Thursday, April 21 2005 @ 16:54:04 CEST by

As expected AMD today rolled out its first dual-core processors, this includes AMD Opteron and AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors. The dual-core AMD Opteron 800 for four to eight way servers will be available immediately and the 200 Series for two-way servers and workstations will ship in late May. The company claims that these processors deliver up to 90 percent performance improvement over single-core AMD Opteron processors.

For desktop users the company unveiled the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor, this processor will become available in June.

A broad portfolio of these multi-tasking processors will join the AMD64 family and includes models 4800+, 4600+, 4400+ and 4200+ with the price based on performance at $1001, $803, $581 and $537, respectively, in 1,000-unit quantities.

The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors offer a compelling price/performance ratio, beginning with the AMD Opteron 200 Series that starts at $851 in 1,000-unit quantities for Model 265 and scales to $1,299 in 1,000-unit quantities for the Model 275. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron 800 Series will start at $1,514 in 1,000-unit quantities for Model 865 and reach up to $2,649 in 1,000-unit quantities for the Model 875.

The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Models 265 and 865 are priced the same as the single-core AMD Opteron processor Models 252 and 852, thereby making the shift to dual-core technology an easy decision for customers.
