AMD ships 90nm Opterons
AMD will today begin shipping the 90nm incarnations of its Opteron 1xx, 2xx and 8xx processor lines, The Register has learned.
The availability of the chips, confirmed by an AMD spokesman, means the company has made good its promise to ship the processors by the end of 2004 - though it only has around three weeks to make that happen.
The news comes a day after AMD announced it intends to incorporate its PowerNow! power preservation system into upcoming Opteron chips. Those chips are due to ship during H1 2005, the company said, so it's clear they represent a second generation of 90nm Opteron rather than the ones being made available today.
In what quantities the 90nm Opterons are shipping is now known. AMD's roadmap dubs the new chips 'Venus', 'Troy' and 'Athens', for the 1xx, 2xx and 8xx series, respectively.
