45nm Opterons surface in e-tail listings
AMD's 45nm quad-core Opteron processors are closing in. CNet news has spotted listings for the upcoming chips at two online retailers—PC Connection and Buy.com. Those listings show four eight-way Opterons and two two-way models, all with clock speeds between 2.4GHz and 2.7GHz.
The Opteron 8384—the fastest of the bunch—will set you back $2,336 if you pre-order it at Buy.com right now. The same e-tailer also offers a $2,027 Opteron 8382, a $1,646 Opteron 8380, and a $1,266 Opteron 8378. Those prices aren't exactly low, but all of these CPUs should work in eight-socket systems, and CNet News says they run at respective speeds of 2.7GHz, 2.6GHz, 2.5GHz, and 2.4GHz.
On the two-socket front, Buy.com also lists a 2.6GHz Opteron 2382 for $949 and a 2.5GHz Opteron 2380 for $759. You can get these two chips (and the four 8300-series specimens) for a few bucks less by grabbing heatsink-less versions, though. PC Connection lists the same models, but with (substantially) higher prices.
