AMD Opteron processors are coming closer and closer to their official announcement on the 22nd of April and by now numerous web-stores have either already received the first batch of these chips or just got a word from their distributors about the Opteron CPUs to appear soon. In short, the Opteron processors have now appeared for pre-order in numerous web-stores and pricing details leaked into the Web.

According to search-engine, the Opteron 240 retail version costs $343.95, while the OEM version of the same product is priced at $320.95. The more powerful AMD Opteron 242 processor will be sold for $780.95 in tray mode and for $803.95 in retail box.

AMD Opteron 2xx processors are designed to work in 2-way servers and workstations, so, you should compare them to Intel Xeon (DP) CPUs. As AMDZone pointed out, the 242 part is slightly more expensive than the Xeon 3.0GHz, while the pricing of the Opteron 240 chip is comparable to the pricing of Xeon 2.66GHz processors.

In March we also revealed AMD Opteron 244 pricing - $667 for one and $1333 for a couple of them (see this news-story), however, these CPUs will only make it to the market in May, as we had told you even earlier (see this news-story).

On the 22nd of April AMD will unveil its first ever x86-64 Opteron processors with 141, 142, 241, 242, 841 and 842 model numbers for various servers and workstations.
