Default 3 GHz Opteron

The Inquirer (don't know how accurate they are) stated that AMD will release an Opteron processor clocked at 3 GHz in the beginning of the second quarter.

It uses the 90 nm single-core 256, aimed at two-way servers, should have 1 MB of L2 cache and use socket 940, like the previous models.

Also on that website, do you see that other link in there regarding how Dell will not pick up AMD? Their loss...

Personally, i would trust the inquirer. They have been wrong a couple times about roadmaps.

The Inquirer often times has very incorrect information. So, it's best to take their news with a grain of salt...

Anyway, the "Dell will not pick up AMD" article is refuted and debated here:

In which they actually do refer to the Inquirer's article in the commentary. A very good read!
