AMD has cut prices
on several Opteron processors. Several chips in the Opteron 200 series and Opteron 800 series processors now cost far less than they did, with the dual-core Opteron 280 and Opteron 880 dropping 34 percent and 43 percent respectively. The 280 now costs $851, down from $1,299, and the 880 now costs $1,514, down from $2,649. The prices are only a guide that reflects orders in quantities of 1,000 units.
