I am not attacking here, and I know news is faster than product, but the announcement was almost two months ago.  I am very interested in trying out this new product for home web and file servers.  After that, I had also wanted to maybe play with making low power clusters.

I have been trying to get actual (NOT MARKETING) information about this product since I first saw the announcement.  Will there be support for multiple processors per board?  What socket does it use?  What chipset, if any, does it use (inclusion of NB/SB on chip suggests it may not be needed as a separate component?)  I find nothing but the usual noob info about this product.

The only link I can find on AMD about possible purchase points to HP Moonshot.  Not paying $30k+ for a home unit for testing...  Especially not with proprietary software...

I do not intend to point fingers or blame, but it has seemed to me that communications have been worse since the new CEO took over.  The two may be unrelated, but it concerns me...

Any real information would be helpful, thankyou...

Hi all,

Joined the forum to get a bit more information about this product too. I have had a look around and can't find any mention of a release date, it seems to be implied by the AMD website that this product has already been released but seems to be completely unavailable for purchase.

Are there any known motherboard vendors? I would be particularly interested to see these in a mITX (or pITX) form factor to compete with the HP Small Business servers.

If you reference the Opteron X-series APU Press Release information at http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/amd-launches-the-2013may29.aspx, you will note the following line:

The AMD Opteron X2150 APU and X1150 CPU are generally available now for a cost of $99 and $64, respectively, in 1K quantities.  More information can be found on AMD’s web site.

So they are available, but not for individual purchase at this time, only in large quantities. These may be made available for individual purchase later on, but they are available now, but not in small numbers. You can obtain these by contacting your local AMD Embedded/Server distributor (www.amd.com/distributors).
