AMD releases dual-core server chips

Intel may have come out with dual-core processors a few days earlier, but Advanced Micro Devices says it is bringing out dual-core chips to the market where it counts.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based chipmaker on Thursday released its first three dual-core Opteron processors for servers. It plans to follow that release with three more server chips and a desktop line during the next two months.

Although desktop buyers will inevitably consume the performance that dual-core chips can provide, server customers will be able to use the performance almost immediately. Several applications and operating systems have already been retrofitted for running on dual-processor systems. Hewlett-Packard, IBM and others will insert the dual-core Opterons into servers.
