AMD Quad Opteron 1300

AMD today seized on the Computex show to launch a new set of quad-core Opterons aimed at high-end home users and budget workstations or servers. The 1300 series is rated for just one processor socket and meant for users that are comfortable with four cores; the feature set is the same as for the full-power 2000- and 8000-series, including better power saving and support for virtualization and the company's signature HyperTransport bus.


The semiconductor firm plans a quick launch and says the chips are already available at speeds of 2.1GHz (1352), 2.2GHz (1354), and 2.3GHz (1354); prices per chip in large batches are set at $209, $255, and $377. AMD hasn't announced price changes for any of its earlier 1000-series chips.
