AMD presents the new AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series - the world’s first and only 16 - core x86 server processor with the highest core density for incredible scalability to handle demanding multi - threaded workloads such as cloud computing, virtualization, high - performance computing (HPC), databases and business applications.
The innovative modular architecture helps pack in more cores, making it the natural choice for heavy-threaded cloud computing environments and enterprise applications that demand outstanding performance and scalability.
The Opteron 6200 and 4200 Series processors (formerly code-named “Interlagos” and “Valencia”) are designed to give enterprises better performance for business with up to 84 percent higher performance, increased scalability for virtualization with up to 73 percent more memory bandwidth, enabling servers to host more virtual machines and also handle increasing workloads and more efficient economics for the Cloud with half the power per core, requiring 2/3 less floor space and up to 2/3 lower platform price.
The Opteron 3000 Series platform is targeted to the ultra-dense, ultra-low power 1P Web Hosting/Web Serving and Microserver markets. The first processor will be the 4-8 core CPU code-named “Zurich”, expected to ship in the first half of 2012. “Zurich” is based on the “Bulldozer” architecture and leverages the new Socket AM3+. This series offering is designed for hosting customers who require dedicated servers for their customers.
