Coming on the heels of Intel’s production of the new Xeon 5600 processors, AMD has launched the Opteron 6000 series processors today. AMD performance tests indicate that it outperforms Intel’s new processors and consumes less power. On top of that, the price tag is significantly lower on the AMD processors. I am interested to see how Intel responds to these claims.
Our web configurators will be updated in the next couple of weeks with both the new Intel and AMD processors. Meanwhile, you can order a system with Xeon 5600 by calling us (877-ICC-USA9), e-mailing us (sales at icc-usa dot com), or through live chat. ICC will be offering Opteron 6000 processors in our servers soon (most likely this week).
