Sources in the industry provided us some additional information about the launch of AMD Opteron processors that will take place on the 22nd of April this year. It was told that AMD will first make available the CPUs with 1.40, 1.60 and 1.80GHz core-clock speed, while the 2.0GHz model will come later and there is no precise information when exactly it will be unveiled.

We also received an example of how the Opteron processors will be marked, take a look:

Logo 1: AMD Trademark Logo
Logo 2: AMD Logo
Text 1: OPN
Text 2: Internal only info & Date code
Text 3: Serial #
Text 4: Copyright Information
Text 5: Country Of Origin

As you see, AMD will implement a kind of Serial Number on its high-end processors, just like Intel marks its Itanium and Itanium2 CPUs.
