AMD unveils new six-core AMD Opteron Processor
AMD has announced availability of the world’s first six-core server processor with Direct Connect Architecture for two-, four- and eight-socket servers.

The Six-Core AMD Opteron processors (code-named “Istanbul”) allows AMD to address the need for more cores and greater scalability across a single platform.

Systems based on Six-Core AMD Opteron processors are expected to be available beginning this month from OEMs including Cray, Dell, HP, IBM and Sun Microsystems, along with support from motherboard and infrastructure partners. HE, SE and EE versions of the Six-Core AMD Opteron processor are planned for the second half of 2009.

Six-Core AMD Opteron processors leverage existing platform infrastructure and a low-cost, power-efficient DDR-2 memory architecture which can help lower system acquisition costs. HPC, virtualization and database workloads can benefit from increased 4P STREAM memory bandwidth of up to 60 percent enabled by HyperTransport technology HT Assist, which helps reduce processor to processor latency and traffic;

AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology and the AMD-P suite of power management features are available across all performance and power bands.

The new Six-Core AMD Opteron processor has up to 34 percent more performance-per-watt over the previous generation quad-core processors in the exact same platform.

“Based on close collaboration with our customers, we believe there is a clear value shift changing the economics of the server market,” said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager, Server and Workstation Business, AMD. “The new Six-Core AMD Opteron processor meets the increasing need for a combination of low total cost of ownership, superior performance-per-watt and scalability. Simply put, Six-Core AMD Opteron processors deliver top-line performance that’s bottom-line efficient.”
