Default AMD ships 3Ghz Opteron; 3.2 on the way

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has begun shipping two 3 GHz versions of its dual-core Opteron chip to server vendors, continuing a battle over multicore processing power with Intel Corp., the company said Wednesday.

AMD plans to begin full-volume shipments by early May of the new Opteron 2222 SE chip for two-processor servers and the 8222 SE chip for eight-processor servers, said Patrick Patla, director of Opteron marketing for the company.

The new chips are similar to AMD's previous top-shelf, dual-core chip, but run as fast as 3 GHz instead of 2.8 GHz for customers with general-purpose servers and workstations who need the extra speed to handle larger databases or more complex technical computing tasks.

AMD plans to design only one more version of this processor family, releasing a 3.2 GHz dual-core Opteron chip by the fourth quarter, before committing entirely to a quad-core Opteron design called Barcelona, due to reach markets in the middle of 2007, Patla said. AMD will continue to produce those final dual-core Opteron chip designs for several years to come.

The new Opteron chips beat Intel's fastest dual-core Woodcrest processors in several benchmarks, AMD claimed in a full-page newspaper ad running on Wednesday.

In return, Intel spokeswoman Christine Dotts replied with a single word: "Rubbish." She questioned AMD's benchmarking conditions and said that customers seeking improved server speed can buy Intel's quad-core chips for the same price as AMD's dual-core chips. Intel launched its Clovertown quad-core Xeon processor in November.

The worry for me is mid year is only 2 months away and we have not heard anything on the Barcelona front. I have no doubt though that AMD will deliver Barcelona on time. When it comes to the server front there is no way AMD is going to drop the ball.

I can feel your anger, it makes you focused, makes you stronger...

Oh, you want to initiate the AMD/Intel Server/Workstation War of 2007, let it begin, then shrink the Opty die to 65nm and increase your power.

I would seriously consider going back to AMD when the release a quad core processor, but today, they simply aren't competitive in the low-end and mid-range server market.
