Le Inq reports that AMD chips using the Barcelona core will be released on September 10th, with the first chips to surface being a 1.9GHz 2348 and a 2GHz 2350.
Other chips will follow in October of this year although a 2354, which is a 2.2GHz microprocessor, is likely to be available in August through channel distribution. Sources close to AMD's plans in Taiwan tell the INQ that AMD hopes to get 2.5GHz bins out of Barcelona, although dates for such beasts are not yet available.
What we do have now is a projected chart for the chips, which are double socket quad cores with 64K x 4 L1 cache, 512K x 4 L2 cache, so 2MB shared cache, and when you buy them in 1000s.
Opteron 2340 1.9GHz 95W $320
Opteron 2350 2.0GHz 95W $390
Opteron 2352 2.1GHz 95W $450
Opteron 2354 2.2GHz 95W $610
Opteron 2356 2.3GHz 95W $795
Opteron 2358 2.4GHz 120W $1180
Opteron 2360 2.5GHz 120W TBA
Other chips are the 8348 at $790; the 8350 at $1,025; the 8352 TBA; the 8354 at $1,190 and the 8356 at $1,550. No firm dates for many of these chips are yet available.
