AMD will roll out Opteron 150, 250 and 850 chips running at 2.4GHz in June.

So claim sources said to be familiar with the chip maker's roadmap, according to Xbit Labs.

The 130nm Socket 940 parts will continue to support 333MHz and 400MHz DDR SDRAM on registered ECC DIMMs using their integrated dual-channel memory controller.

The chips are believed to be based on a new revision of the Opteron core, but the tweaks are relatively minor - they still feature 128KB of L1 and 1MB of L2 cache. It's suggested that these may be the last 130nm Opterons before AMD introduces 90nm versions some time during the second half of the year. However, a note that the parts' revised core is, in part, intended to "maintain competitive frequency curves", suggests faster versions may be released in due course. ®
