Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

AMD today launched the top-end Opteron processors that its last round of price-cuts, made earlier this month, had paved the way for.

The Opteron 150, 250 and 850 target uni-processor, two-way and four- or eight-way systems, respectively. They are likely to be the last 130nm Opterons before AMD introduces 90nm versions in the second half of the year.

While the chips' launch comes earlier than expected, they will still ship in June, as anticipated. However, AMD spins it as "available within 30 days" of today's launch. That refers to the 150 and 850 - the 250, at least, is available straight away.

The 150, 250 and 850 are all clocked at 2.4GHz.

The three chips are priced at $637, $851 and $1514, respectively, in batches of 1000 processors. ®
