Addressing customer demand for higher performing, uni-processor x86 solutions, AMD has introduced three new Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors for one-socket servers and workstations.
Global tier-one OEMs including HP and Dell plan to incorporate the new processors into upcoming platforms, and global supercomputer leader Cray is now shipping Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processor-based Cray XT4 systems and upgrading some of the world’s fastest supercomputers to incorporate Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors.
“AMD is committed to helping commercial customers who rely on 1P server and workstation solutions to take advantage of the same enterprise-class performance and energy-efficiency that power the largest global businesses,” says Patrick Patla, director: Server and Workstation Business at AMD.
“From entry-level servers and complex workstation environments to some of the largest supercomputers in the world, the new Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors are designed to address the key customer priorities of performance, performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar.”
The new Quad-Core AMD Opteron Models 1352 (2.1GHz), 1354 (2.2GHz), and 1356 (2.3GHz) processors are designed to empower small to mid-market customers to meet growing IT and budgetary demands and increase business productivity.
With the enhanced computing capabilities of AMD’s native quad-core architecture in the same socket and thermal requirements as previous AMD Opteron 1000 Series processors, and industry-leading power management and virtualization innovations such as Enhanced AMD PowerNow! technology and Rapid Virtualization Indexing, Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors provide small and mid-size customers an energy-efficient yet powerful computing platform that can maximize IT resources and grow with their business demands.
Built on AMD’s unmatched Direct Connect Architecture which helps eliminate the bottlenecks associated with front-side bus architectures, Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors deliver the world-class performance, scalability and overall system efficiency necessary to power one of the world’s largest high-performance computing (HPC) systems.
