AMD has begun shipping dual-core Opteron 1xx series processors to the embedded market, the chip maker said yesterday.

AMD has shipped dual-core Opteron 2xx and 8xx chips for two- and four-way servers, but has yet to offer a version of its Opteron 1xx family, aimed at uni-processor servers and workstations.

Earlier this week, AMD introduced updated 1xx chips, adding support for unbuffered ECC memory. At the time, the company said dual-core 1xx parts would ship within 30 days. Meanwhile, it upped 1xx prices, for good measure.

AMD's announcement yesterday centres on all dual-core Opterons, from all three series, along with the low-power 55W 'HE' versions of each chip, but it's the first reference to the availability of the Opteron 165.

All the parts are to be offered under AMD's Longevity Programme, a plan to ensure long-term, five-year continuity of supply to customers developing embedded devices. Primarily, they are in the enterprise storage and telecoms infrastructure markets. ®
