AMD Opterons reach 3GHz

AMD has released two new chipsets in its Opteron line, the 2222 SE and 8222 SE, officially bringing performance to the 3GHz level. Though this matches the recently released Athlon 64 X2 6000+, the 2222 is designed to work in dual-processor systems, and the 8222 can function in four- or even eight-processor configurations. The target audience is of course businesses running workstations and servers.

The new Opterons are equipped with 2MB L2 caches, and fit into Socket F motherboards, which use DDR2 memory. Themal data power should be around 120W. AMD is still using the standard 90nm fabrication process for these chips, but the future should see quad-core Opterons using a smaller manufacture. [via eWeek]
