AMD slashes Opteron prices, adds high-end models

by Vitaly Popovich [Published on 7 Feb. 2007 / Last Updated on 7 Feb. 2007]


Digitimes.com reports a drop in AMD CPU prices:
AMD has published across-the-board price cuts for its Opteron range of high-end and server processors in all of its 1-way, 2-way and 8-way lines. Additionally, it has released several new high-end models, as well as high-efficiency (HE) variants of its Opteron 1000 series CPUs.
Stating at the top of the scale, the price of the AMD Opteron 8220 SE has been slashed from US$2,149 to US$1,514, a 30% reduction, and a new model, the 8220, has been added to the series at the same cost. Other 8000 series models have also fallen in price by between 20% and 30%. In the high-efficiency range, the Opteron 8128 HE has been added at a cost of US$1,340.
In the 800 series, the Dual-Core Opteron 890 has been added at US$1,514, and the lowest-end 865 has been removed. All models in the series have moved down a step in price equivalent to those of the previous list. This trend continues in the single-core variants in the range, with the Opteron 850 falling to US$523, and the high-efficiency variants. The model 848 HE has also been removed.
The 2000- and 200-series sees similar additions with the introduction of the Opteron 2200 at US$698, 2218 HE at US$611, and Dual-Core AMD Opteron 290 at US$698. Both standard and HE variants of the model 246 are no longer listed.
The Opteron 1220 at US$545 has been introduced to the 1000 series, as well as five HE versions of the other models in the range.
In related news AMD added the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ to its range of dual-core CPUs for desktops with a PIB (processor in a box) price of US$138.
