AMD has announced the availability of a new server platform featuring the world’s first 8- and 12-core x86 processor for the high-volume server market.

The AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform addresses the needs of server customers today, which include according to the company workload-specific performance, power efficiency, and overall value. The new platforms while delivering more cores and more memory for less money. The company based this on comparisons with the for Intel Xeon “Westmere” platform, saying that its new AMD Opteron 6000 Series can host up to 24 DIMMs with up to 256GB of main memory vs. up to 18 DIMM slots with up to 144 GB of main memory for Intel.

"As AMD has done before, we are again redefining the server market based on current customer requirements,” said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager, Server and Embedded Divisions, AMD. “The AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform signals a new era of server value, significantly disrupts today’s server economics and provides the performance-per-watt, value and consistency customers demand for their real-world data center workloads.”

The new AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform processors perform at up to two times the level of AMD’s previous generation 6-core processors, including an 88 percent increase in integer performance4 and a 119 percent increase in floating point performance.

An enhanced integrated memory controller supporting four channels of DDR3 memory provides up to a 2.5x improvement in overall memory bandwidth.

The AMD 5600 Series chipset supports I/O virtualization capability, HyperTransport™ 3.0 technology and PCI Express 2.0.

New power management features including a C1E power state to conserve energy when idle, the Advanced Platform Management Link allowing APML-enabled platforms to be remotely monitored for power and cooling, and AMD CoolSpeed technology, which automatically reduces p-states if a specified temperature limit is exceeded.
