Nimble Gateway learns of the Opteron processor

AMD has a server chip, y'all

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Bumbling hardware maker Gateway has finally caught on to this Opteron thing. The company today announced three, new Opteron-based servers.

It's safe to say that branding is not Gateway's strong suit.

Customers will now see the 1U E-9422R, the 2U E-9522R and the 3U E-9722R. If you find the E-9622R somewhere, let us know.

The 1U box ships as a two-socket, dual-core system with the 2000 Series Opterons and the Nvidia MCP55 Pro chipset. The box can also run on AMD's lower voltage Opteron HE chips.

Gateway offers a few more features such as four 10/1000 GbE NICs, support for the 32GB of memory and up to four SAS or SATA II hard drives.

Moving up to the 2U kit, Gateway offers the same versions of Opterons but adds up to six hard drives.

Even higher up, you'll find the 3U, four-socket system with 8000 Series Opterons. The server can hold up to 12 hard drives and has support for dual system configurations.

Gateway is taking orders for the gear now, and you can find the systems on its web site. The 1U box starts at $1,799, while the 2U system starts at $1,849. Gateway refused to reveal a price for the 3U server, although it might tell you how much the system costs if you call.

Gateway is just about the last server vendor on the planet to add Opteron to its product line.®
