AMD rolled out two new Opteron processors, one each for its 100 and 800 series of chips.

Both the Opteron 146 and 846 had been widely anticipated. The former is aimed at single-processor systems, the 846 for four- and eight-way machines. Both are clocked at 2GHz, like the Opteron 246 release a month or so back.

The Opteron 200 series, developed for two-way systems, remains AMD's flagship workstation and server chip. Now that the 100 and 800 series have caught up with the 200 series' highest rated chip, AMD will soon release the 248 at 2.2GHz, later this month or early October.

In the meantime, the Opteron 146 and 846 are available now, the former on a general basis, the latter through AMD's Validated Server Programme. The two chips cost $669 and $3199, respectively, in 1000-unit batches. ®
