Computer hardware manufacturer AMD recently expanded its broad range of products available for web hosting companies with the addition of its latest Opteron microprocessor. Touting extreme power cutting capabilities and increased overall performance, the new six-core chip operates at a mere 40W.
With cloud computing and dense deployments driving the need for greater efficiency, the new low power chip is designed with heavy operations in mind. The Opteron chip enables platform versatility and flexibility with regard to the demanding applications used in virtualization. The chip also gives greater performance and manageability to intensive database applications. The HyperTransport™3 technology built in the six-core chip helps reduce filter probe traffic between processors and significantly improves database and virtualization workloads. For HPC applications, the new chip can supply varied needs by workload and memory bandwidth. AMD’s newest addition reduces power costs and helps create more efficient servers.
