Vendors ship AMD Quad-Core Opteron servers<br />

Major computer vendors are now starting to ship servers featuring AMD’s quad-core Opteron processor, code-named Barcelona.

The chip seems back on track after suffering production delays and the discovery of a bug in 2007, which led to a 50% drop in AMD’s stock price.

Dell has announced the availability of five servers based on Quad-Core Opteron - the PowerEdge SC1435, 2970, M605, 6950, and T605. The servers are targeted at business users of all sizes, and rack and tower models are both available.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has also released Quad-Core Opteron servers - the Primergy RX330 S1 and BX630 S2 blade servers, and the entry-level Econel 230R.

HP announced in March that its 8-socket x86 ProLiant DL785 G5 server would be based on the chip, which it is also using in the lower-end and mid-range ProLiants.

AMD expects the move back to profitability in the second half of this year, helped by the introduction of new products.
