Barcelona hits U.S. retail


US$214, in stock at Newegg

After a rough start AMD is finally offering its native quad core Opterons in retail. We wrote about AMD's channel woes here.

Newegg has listed the Opteron 2344HE Barcelona 1.7GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB - OEM for US$214, some $25 under the recommended US$239.

An Intel Xeon E5310 clocked at 1.6GHz will set you back US$237, while the 1.86GHz E5320 costs US$292.

Compared to Intel's products, the new Opteron looks modestly priced, and if the performance is as good as expected, AMD might have a hot product on their hands.
