By CBR Staff Writer

AMD has unveiled its new Opteron 6300 Series server processors based on its next-generation "Piledriver" core architecture.

The new AMD Opteron processors claimed to offer enhanced performance in SPECjbb2005, a server benchmark used to evaluate Java performance, with up to 24% higher to previous generation AMD Opteron 6200 Series processors.

It also claimed to offer 40% higher performance per watt than the prior generation applictaions, enabling businesses running large-scale software systems to enjoy high performance as well as low TCO.

The new Opteron 6300 Series processors leverages optimisations in compilers and libraries, and combines it with the next-generation core architecture, improving HPC performance.

AMD’s new release delivers up to 3.5 GHz base frequency and up to 3.8 GHz using AMD Turbo CORE technology for increased performance and up to four x16 HyperTransport technology (HT3) links at up to 6.4GT/s per link.

It also delivers up to 16 cores per socket for scaling in thread-intensive environments, up to four memory channels with up to 1866 MHz memory and supports ultralow voltage 1.25v memory and up to 12 DIMMs per CPU for up to 384GB memory per processor.

The AMD-P power management features maximise performance-per-watt across workloads while giving IT managers control over their data centre power profiles.

In addition, the Opteron 6300 Series server processors include AMD Virtualizatio (AMD-V) technology for near-native performance in virtualised environments and lowest cost per virtual machine (VM).

AMD Fusion Partner Program partner Penguin Computing has released the Opteron 6300 Series processors on its Altus line of rackmount servers.
