Advanced Micro Devices has released a $99 Opteron processor that can be used in most cloud-computing environments.  The cloud server quad-core 4122 is the lowest-priced server chip ever sold by AMD and is one of the 4100 series Opterons unveiled Wednesday for one- and two-socket servers. The 4100 family comprises two quad-core processors and seven six-core chips. Prices range from $99 to $698.

AMD’s latest processors and cloud servers are aimed at cloud-computing environments that run on inexpensive, low-power chips that drive scale-out servers. Power requirements of the latest AMD chips are 32 watts, 50 watts or 75 watts, depending on the processor.

All the chips support AMD’s latest virtualization technology and include an integrated DDR3 memory controller. In addition, the chip sockets used for the 4100 series will support AMD’s 16-core Opteron, codenamed Bulldozer, which is set for release next year.
