AMD's next-generation launch date is still set for "summer 2007"

AMD is set to debut its third-generation Opteron server processor architecture later this quarter. The company publically announced its upcoming launch next month, but the company's latest processor guidance, released just this week, states otherwise.

AMD plans to offer initial quad-core Opterons at core frequencies below 2.0 GHz. The company will launch eight quad-core processors under the Opteron 8000 and 2000 series umbrellas. Standard and high-efficiency (HE) models are ready for launch later this quarter.


Quad-core Opteron 8000 Series Launch

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

8350 2.0 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

8348 1.9 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

8348 HE 1.9 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W



AMD has three quad-core Opteron 8000 series models in two speed grades for launch – the 8350, 8348 and 8348 HE. The processors will ship with 2.0 GHz and 1.9 GHz clock frequencies, respectively.


Quad-core Opteron 2000 Series Launch

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

2350 2.0 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

2348 1.9 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

2348 HE 1.9 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W

2346 HE 1.8 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W

2344 HE 1.7 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W



Quad-core Opteron 2000-series will have a similar launch schedule with the 2348, 2350 and 2348 HE. These models are identical to the Opteron 8000 series, except the chips can only operate in two-socket systems. The quad-core Opteron 2000 series also gains two lower speed variants – the 2346 HE and 2344 HE. The quad-core Opteron 2346 HE and 2344 HE feature 1.8 GHz and 1.7 GHz clock speeds, respectively. This concludes the quad-core launch lineup for the quarter.

AMD plans to launch the initial batch of quad-core Opterons this quarter. However, customers will not receive initial DVT samples until next month and actual production for customer order fulfillment does not begin until September. AMD still does not have an exact launch date set, but the AMD roadmap states a summer 2007 launch and autumn begins on September 23.


Quad-core Opteron 8000 Series Q4'2007

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

8360 SE 2.5 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

8358 SE 2.4 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

8356 2.3 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

8354 2.2 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

8350 HE 2.0 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W




Quad-core Opteron 2000 Series Q4'2007

Model CoreFrequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

2360 SE 2.5 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

2358 SE 2.4 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

2356 2.3 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

2354 2.2 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

2352 2.1 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

2350 HE 2.0 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 68W



AMD will ramp up clock speeds of quad-core Opteron 8000 and 2000 series in Q4’2007, with the first quad-core SE models entering production. Eleven quad-core models with clock speeds excess of 2.0 GHz will enter production in Q4’2007 with an undetermined launch date. The new models will top out with a 2.5 GHz clock-speed. AMD promises DVT samples of the new models in early Q4’2007.


Quad-core Opteron 8000 Series Q2'2008

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

8362 SE 2.6 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

8358 2.4 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W



Quad-core Opteron 2000 Series Q2'2008

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

2362 SE 2.6 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

2358 2.4 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W



Quad-core Opterons will have a 2.5 GHz clock speed cap until Q2’2008 when the first 2.6 GHz 8362 SE and 2362 SE models enter production. AMD has not set DVT availability or launch dates of the 2.6 GHz models yet.


Quad-core Opteron 1000 Series

Model Core Frequency L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP

1360 SE
2.5 GHz 4x512KB 2MB
120W

1358 SE
2.4 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 120W

1356 2.3 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

1354 2.2 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W

1352 2.1 GHz 4x512KB 2MB 95W



AMD also has five quad-core Opteron 1000 series models in the pipeline. These models are only available in speed grades above 2.0 GHz. AMD has three models ready for production in November – the 1356, 1354 and 1352. DVT samples of theses processors are available next month. Higher-clocked 1360 SE and 1358 SE models will enter production in December, with DVT samples available in October.

Expect AMD to launch the first set of Barcelona-based quad-core Opteron 8000 and 2000 series processors later this summer.
Glad to see they're finally coming out with Barcelona! Sadly, those speeds better be enough to fight with Penryns....

i cant say i am impressed by these numbers at all. even at such low frequencies the tdp is very high... at the same frequency (2.4) intel uses 25w less than amd. ohh yeah and the amd chip is about a year older and is a native quad cores so it should use less power i would think. if barcelona doesnt easily clock over 3ghz or do about 15 ops per cycle the wont sell any chips, for good reason

These things sound like they'll be beastly at multi-threaded applications, though, and since a lot of server applications are multi-threaded, I expect they'll perform excellently in their intended environment and sell like hot-cakes to companies.

They might not mean as much to us enthusiasts, but AMD will be selling a lot of these. An AMD selling new processors is a good thing.

He is saying they will do better than Intel.

Then some guy from an OC site will buy one and say it has horrible FEAR FPS!!

I'm sure these will be great server procs.. I'm waiting for the FX version of Barcelona.

Good find!!

That is a lot of cpu's. I am concerened about the speeds too. Nothing over 3ghz! Must have some kick ass architecture to be able to rival Intel's Penryns.

Any word on new chipsets or sockets on these things? I have had AMD stuff for yrs and never seen something so hush hush.

I am afraid these have no chance of competing with the new 45NM Xeons launching in late August / early September.

L5430 2.66Ghz / 1333Mhz FSB / 12MB L2 / Quad Core / 45NM / 50 Watts
E5450 3.00Ghz / 1333Mhz FSB / 12MB L2 / Quad Core / 45NM / 80 Watts
X5460 3.16Ghz / 1333Mhz FSB / 12MB L2 / Quad Core / 45NM / 120Watts

Only place AMD can compete is with pricing... and I think Intel has the edge on pricing considering they are manufactoring these on a 300mm wafer at the 45nm level with a lot more fabs and resources than AMD...

You know anything about pricing on the xeons? I'm wondering if they will be cheap...also, do you mean Aug/Sept. of this year? Thx paul.
