California-based server companies QSOL and Colfax International have started to offer a 4-way AMD Opteron-based system on their web-sites. This is the first ever server 4-way system powered by AMD processors and obviously a very important milestone for the Sunnyvale, California-based CPU maker.

The systems come in a 4U rack-mount chassis and are based on AMD 8131 + AMD 8111 core-logic. The companies may equip the system with up to 4 AMD Opteron 844 (1.80GHz) processors, 32GB of PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory (future capability to install 64GB of RAM using 4GB modules is also possible), up to 3 Hot Swap 500W Power Supplies (2+1), up to 4 147GB SCSI HDDs with Hot Swap support, five 64-bit PCI-X slots, integrated Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet ports and also System Management controllers.

There is no information about pricing and real availability of a 4P AMD Opteron server, but no one would start to offer a server it could not actually supply, hence, 4-way machines powered by AMD processors are apparently either here or just around the corner.

All further information and configurations of 4P AMD Opteron servers can be seen here or here.
