AMD releases Opteron 146 and 846

AMD has completed the roll-out of its group of Opteron chips by adding the Opteron 146 and Opteron 846 to its lineup.

AMD released the Opteron 246 in July, and was expected to release the Opteron 146 for one-way servers and workstations and the Opteron 846 for servers with up to eight processors shortly thereafter.

The x46 chips run at 2.0GHz, and come with 1Mbyte of Level 2 cache. AMD also makes Opteron chips at three slower speeds.

The Opteron 146 costs $669 (£420) in 1,000-unit quantities, and the Opteron 846 costs $3,199 (£2,010) in 1,000-unit quantities.

The Opteron 146 and systems with the chip are immediately available.

The Opteron 846 is available in servers built by system builders participating in AMD's Validated Server Program.
