AMD Talks 8 and 12 Core Opterons

AMD have confirmed that their Opteron 6100 Series processors are on schedule. 

For all you server guys out there AMD have given a little teaser about its new 8 and 12 core processors which are not shipping right at this moment.

Normally large corporations do not talk about unannounced products or rumours but AMD felt it was obliged to do so when an Ebay user started offering the processors for sale last week.

“That distant hum that you hear is the sound of the factory churning out AMD’s most advanced x86 processor ever. Yes, production of the new 8- and 12-core AMD Opteron™ 6100 Series processors (codenamed “Magny-Cours”) is underway.

Production began last month and our OEM partners have been receiving production parts this month.  We have had a few select end customer opportunities that have been fulfilled, but it is nothing we can talk about publicly.

As a matter of fact, we were not planning to talk about any of this just yet, but earlier this week, someone tried to offer products that they claimed were “Magny-Cours” processors for sale on the web.  Obviously the message about 12-core goodness with incredible value is making it out into the market, so much so that somebody wanted to jump on the bandwagon.

I wasn’t really expecting to write this blog just yet, I was hoping to spring that news sometime in the near future, but the internet’s “series of tubes” have been lit up and stole my thunder.

So, there it is, we’re building them now, and we expect that you’ll be seeing a launch before the end of the quarter.  With 8 or 12 cores, 4 memory channels and lots of other great technology coming, it’s worth the wait.  WELL worth the wait.” John Fruehe Director of Product Marketing for Server/Workstation products at AMD.

If anyone wants a sample we suggest not buying it from Ebay before the product ships.
