AMD refreshes low-power chips

Improved versions shipped

Advanced Micro Devices is shipping B3 versions of its low-power Quad-Core Opteron processors.

AMD first detailed these processors in September 2007, when it unveiled the Quad-Core Opteron processor. However, earlier versions of the chips were affected by a bug discovered in December that reportedly forced AMD to suspend some processor shipments. The B3 version of the chips announced fixes that bug.

Three of the chips — the 2344 HE, 2346 HE, and 2347HE — are designed for servers with two processors, while the other two — the 8346 HE and 8347 HE — can be used in servers with four or eight processors.

The chips have an average power consumption of 55 watts.
