A week ago we reported about Opteron 240 and 242 pricing based on the information published by a price-search engine and the details did not appeared to be really accurate. Today our sources told us some other information about AMD Opteron pricing and since this data seem to be a bit more objective, I decided to share it with you.

AMD Opteron CPUs (of course, designed strictly for AMD Socket 940) will be available in OEM (tray) and PIB (inbox) versions. No idea if they actually reach retail market some day in massive quantities, but if they do, do not be surprised.

The first Opteron processors to reach the market will be the x86-64 CPUs for 2-way servers and workstation with OPNs OSA240CCO5AH and OSA242CCO5AH, while later there will be also Opteron Series 100 to compete against Intel Pentium 4-based servers as well as Opteron Series 800 for battling with Intel Xeon MP platforms.

The Opteron model 240 will cost $275 if you buy from an AMD distributor, while the Opteron 242 will be priced at $670, nearly 2.5 times more. These are not official AMD prices for 1000 units, but distributor’s prices, hence, they may vary depending on the region.
