Opteron’s are without doubt the best CPU’s to come from AMD since the Athlon XP bartons, and so it’s nice to hear that AMD have announced three new dual-core Opteron models today, though not all will be of interest to overclockers for obvious reasons.?

The Opteron 885 is 2.6GHz per core, has 2x1MB?L2 cache with support for eight-way/16-core servers (i want one). The 285 has the same specification but supports?two-way/four-core systems.

The interesting release is the socket 939 Opteron 185 for one-way/two-core servers. It’s pretty much identical to the FX60 (2.6GHz per core, 2x1MB L2 cache, 90nm SOI process) but will of course be priced?significantly lower.

The 885 and 285 are available now, with the 185 expected in the next 30 days.
