AMD Istanbul: Pricing, Specs and SKU’s

June 2, 2009

Istanbul for 2P platforms are 2427, 2431 and 2435 running at 2.2GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz, respectively, and running at 75W average power. Initial pricing based on 1,000 unit quantity for the 2400 line-up is reported to be $455, $698 and $989 for the 2427, 2431 and 2435, respectively. As indicated, these will all be HT 3.0-enabled (backwards compatible to HT 1.0) and carry the improved memory controller.

For 4P and 8P systems, two SKUs are initially available: 8431 and 8435 at 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz, respectively. These 8400-series products are expected to be available at $2,149 and $2,649, respectively, in 1,000’s quantities. We expect to see HT Assist play a big role in 4P/8P system refreshes/updates as 4-way stream memory bandwidth performance improve by as much as 60%.
