The DailyTech is reporting today that AMD is finally shipping the B3 rev of the Opterons. This version fixes the dreaded TLB bug we learned about in December that seriously gummed up AMD’s already sticky mojo.

In addition to fixing the TLB race condition, AMD will finally increase the core frequency of the Opteron series on the B3 stepping. After the initial OEM orders are filled, channel vendors like Newegg and TigerDirect will carry the new Opterons in frequencies ranging from 1.8 GHz to 2.4 GHz. Vendor estimates put this e-tailer ship date in early April.
