AMD Opteron processors that are scheduled to be released on the 22nd of April have already been spotted for pre-order online over here by one of our readers. The company promises that server systems and the CPUs themselves will be available starting from the 22nd of April.

We know official launch date of AMD Opteron chips for quite a long time already, that is why this is not interesting anymore. What we are now really curious about is AMD Opteron processor pricing. According to the online store, one AMD Opteron 244 chip costs $667, while a couple of them will come to $1333. Unfortunately, the store does not sell mainboards for these microprocessors. Instead, Newisys 1U 2P Opteron Base system  can be pre-ordered for $3467. Not so lot for a 64-bit server, isn’t it? Well, we will make our conclusion if it is or not later this year, when we have Opteron and Xeon benchmarks on hands.

Opteron processors with 141, 142, 241, 242, 841 and 842 model numbers will be unveiled in April, while in May AMD will launch its Opteron 143, 243 and 843 CPUs, followed by Opteron 144, 244 and 844 chips in June.
