AMD removes 100 series Opteron pricing

A TECH Report review commented that AMD had removed the pricing of its 100 series Opteron processors. Checking the chip maker's Web site confirmed that was true. The processor model numbers are still there but the prices have been asterisked out. Why has that happened?

Now, that's a lot of B/S. The overclockers find the Opteron 100 series to be a good processor to own. AMD is selling a lot of them, and decided only sell them to certain business or people of its choice instead (the OEM guys).

So, either AMD is acting like Intel in its better days or AMD has capacity problem (which I don't think impact the decision in business sense). The result, AMD wants OEM or resellers to make more money from overclockers is the only reason.

Opteron 144 is now selling for $199 at Newegg ..... marketing folks know how overclockers today react to good chip. They will pay top dollars; unlike the old days when overclockers were much more money conscious.

On a second thought, Lenovo situation may truly have impact of capacity.
