New Opteron 4200 and 6200 CPUs added to AMD pricelist
May 01, 2012
: We already reported about AMD's plans to refresh existing Opteron 4200
and 6200 series with several new SKUs, which will be done before
transitioning to the next generation of server processors, based on
Piledriver core. Last month new Opterons surfaced in a few US online
stores, and today AMD added these CPUs to official pricelist. We
consider this as an indication that the SKUs have been launched. The
company also added prices for Opteron 3200 series chips, that were
released in March.
AMD releases Opteron 3200 series processors
Mar 20, 2012
: AMD today launched Opteron 300 series platform for single-socket
low power cloud servers. The platform consists of SR56X0 NorthBridge
chipset, SP5100 SouthBridge chipset, and three Opteron 3200-series
microprocessors featuring from 4 to 8 cores. Although all first
Opteron generations included single-socket models, they have been
dropped in Six-core Opteron family three years ago, and were
re-introduced today with a new twist: they have low power
requirements, and they are targeted at dense power-efficient web servers.

Oct 05, 2011
: Original AMD Opteron family, launched 8 years ago, was aimed at three
different parts of the server market. Opteron 1xx series was destined
for uniprocessor workstations, 2xx series was designed for
dual-processor systems, and 8xx series for multi-processor servers.
Second and Third-generation Opterons followed Opteron's footsteps,
and also targeted low-, mid- and
high-ends of the market segments.
