[eweek]AMD Offers Low-Watt Opterons

Advanced Micro Devices is rounding out its quad-core Opteron portfolio with new low-watt processors for its 8300 and 2300 series.

The five new Opterons, which the company plans to announce May 12, all work within a 55-watt thermal envelope. When AMD first detailed its quad-core Opteron portfolio in September 2007, it promised processors that worked within thermal envelopes of between 55 and 105 watts.

But May 12 marks the first time AMD will make these lower-watt models generally available to customers.

The 55-watt Opteron processors include two chips from the 8300 series—the 8347HE (1.9GHz) and the 8346HE (1.8GHz). There are also three chips within the 2300 series—the 2347HE (1.9GHz), the 2346HE (1.8GHz) and the 2344HE (1.7GHz). The prices, which are calculated in 1,000-unit shipments, range from $873 for the Opteron 8347HE to $209 for the 2344HE.

All of the quad-core Opterons offer 512KB of Level 2 cache with each core and all four cores share 2MB of L3 cache. The models that the company is offering May 12 are for two-, four- and eight-way systems.

oh really? I looked for it as best as I could in the forums but didn't see it. So is this a repost?
