AMD launches server flagships, Opteron 2224 SE and 8224 SE
Without an official press release, AMD has updated its Opteron server processor lineup with two new flagship 2224 SE ($ 873.) and 8224 SE (2149 USD.), operating at a frequency of 3.2 GHz. They are intended for use in two- and eight-processor systems, respectively.
Both new items are based on the same core, codenamed Santa Rosa, have a Socket F processor socket and are equipped with 1 MB L2 cache for each of the two cores.
AnandTech managed to test new Opterons in comparison with dual-core Xeon 5160 (3.0 GHz). The latter turned out to be slower in Cinebench and WinRAR, but won in SPECjbb2021, MySQL and 3ds Max 9.
The Opteron 2224 SE and 8224 SE are likely to become the last models of the current architecture – after all, AMD Barcelona, the first x86-compatible processors with four cores in a single die, should begin shipping at the end of this month.
With the release of new processors, AMD has reduced prices for old. You can read more about this here.
