Default AMD rolls out 3GHz Opteron

This competative new release has AMD allegedly out-benching Intel's Xeon 5160, and while they still wont own the high end- this might help drive a good wedge into the middle for them.

"AMD has started handing customers its fastest dual-core Opterons to date. Server makers and channel sellers have gained access to the 3GHz Model 2222 SE and Model 8222 SE chips, which will slot in just above the already shipping 2.8GHz processors. A similar 3GHz chip for the 1000 Series line should arrive in a few weeks.
AMD has yet to release pricing for the 3.0GHz chip (120W), as it does not plan to formally announce the product for two more weeks. You can expect it to cost a bit more than the 2220 SE, which is $698 in volume, and (less than) the 82220 SE, which is $1,514. The 2000 Series products cater to servers with two-sockets, while the 8000 Series feed systems with four or more sockets."

The Opteron is now being ratcheted up to 3.2 GHz - this new model, however, won't be released until late 2007. This product will continue well after the release of the Barcelona.
