AMD has launched two new low-powered Opterons, destined for the blade server market.

The chip maker says its new babies, the HE (55 watt) and EE (30 watt) processors, have the best performance per watt in their class, and has a SPEC cpu2000 benchmark to prove it.

AMD’s AMD64 technology is now available on hardware across the budget spectrum. AMD says this means that companies can deploy a common infrastructure throughout their business. According to the company, customer demand for low power processors on the 64-bit architecture is significant as businesses seek to reduce operational costs.

The 846 HE and 840 EE models are priced at $1,514; The 246 HE and 240 EE are priced at $851; and the 146 HE and 140 EE are priced at $733. All prices are for 1,000-unit quantities. The chips hit the streets in March. ®
