Dual core Opteron speeds, power revealed

2400MHz tops?

SOURCES TOLD the INQ this week the likely power specifications and other specifications of dual core Opterons AMD will release in 2005.

AMD has already sampled some dual core chips to a select few of its customers. HP is a favoured case in example, but some members of the X64-32 coding community are believed to have samples as well.

The preliminary info that AMD supplies is aimed at manufacturers of power supplies, heatsinks, mobos and systems - these vendors all need the information early.

Although the list we scribbled down contains frequencies of processors, this does not, AMD cautions to its partners, that it guarantees it will release the chips at these speeds.

Nevertheless, earlier this year AMD told the INQ that frequencies for dual core chips would inevitably be less than for single core processors.

However, AMD does guarantee the thermal specs and the like won't be greater than those it has supplied. µ
