AMD Smacks Intel With Opteron 6200

The Register discusses AMD putting the hurt on Intel's Xeon 5600s with their new Opteron 6200s.

So AMD took the Opteron 6200 and aimed it right at the Xeon E5640, which has four cores, eight threads, spins at 2.66GHz, and costs $774 when bought in 1,000-unit trays from Intel. The chip that AMD wants to line up against the Xeon E5640 is the new Opteron 6276, which is a 16-core part spinning at 2.3GHz that sells for $788 in 1,000-unit quantities.

Zambezi Appears at Newegg

Yes, after months of waiting skepticism, waiting and more skepticism the Bulldozer "cat" is out of the bag with Newegg showing no less than three SKUs available as of now. So all of those diehards who bought mobos can head over for some Zambezi goodness.

 

Included are the top of the line FX-8150 (3.6GHz, 8 core), FX-8120 (3.1GHz 4core), and last but not least the FX6100 (3.3GHz 6 core). Reviews should be popping up all over the web today and we'll certainly point out those that appear positive and those that appear negative.

 

Stop back by later today for the goods.
