  • Opteron Pricing


    The Opteron 240 will run at 1.4GHz and cost around $340 in volume quantities, said sources, while the Opteron 242 and 244 will run at, respectively, 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz and cost around $800 and $900. Prices could change, sources cautioned, and, historically, wide discrepancies have existed between AMD’s posted price and the actual prices that the chips sell for.

    While the chip speeds fall within the range of expectations, the pricing underscores the confidence AMD has in the chip’s selling power and performance.

    Hmm.  I might be waiting for Athlon64, though hopefully street prices will end up being less than this.

  • Meld: Visual Diff/Merge

    Hack The Planet:

    Meld is a diff/merge tool for GNOME that looks a lot like the one in CodeWarrior.

    I saw it scroll by on freshmeat and thought it was cool, but if I see something like that mentioned again within 24 hours, it’s probably worth looking in to.
