AMD’s new Opteron 6300 Series Processors
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has launched its 6300 series Opteron processors, codenamed Abu Dhabi. These are based on the next-generation “Piledriver” core architecture.
This series fits in the same sockets as its predecessor, i.e. 6200 series, and consumes the same amount of energy. According to the company, this is about 24% faster in performance tests and 40% in performance per watt.
“Across global IT organizations, cost-effective, scalable performance is a core requirement to support cloud computing, server consolidation and highly-threaded workloads common in HPC, big data and other areas,” Suresh Gopalakrishnan, general manager, Server Business Unit, AMD, said in a statement. “The key to a winning solution for customers is working with OEMs and other solution providers to minimize TCO with a combination of cost effectiveness and superior performance per watt. AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors are uniquely positioned to be the difference-maker customers are seeking.”
