AMD Presents New Dual-core Opteron Processors


With no doubt, AMD has won an "industry first" with the itroduction of the first multicore processors, and today the company announced the release of its fourth series of three new Opteron series processors, topped by the Dual-core Model 880 and followed up by the Dual-core Model 280.

The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 880 for up to eight-way, 16-core enterprise-class servers and Model 280 for high performance dual-processor workstations and servers are immediately available. Model 180 for one-processor, two-core servers and workstations is expected to be available within 30 days.

Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors are claimed to offer significant performance gains while operating in the same power and cooling infrastructure as single-core processors. This can allow fewer servers to do the job of many, helping lower operating costs. In addition, AMD PowerNow! technology with Optimized Power Management can increase that savings because it enables servers and workstations to dynamically power down processors, based on usage.

The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 880 is priced at $2,649 in 1,000-unit quantities and the Model 280 is priced at $1,299 in 1,000-unit quantities. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 180, for single-processor workstations and servers, is scheduled to be available within 30 days and will be priced at $799 in 1,000-unit quantities.

Intel's Response

Following AMD's announcement, rival chip manufacturer Intel announced today the availability of its last planned single-core Intel Xeon processor. Intel also announced new low voltage versions of its Intel Xeon processor line as the company shifts to enterprise platforms with processors having two or more cores.

The new Intel Xeon processors include the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor LV 3 GHz1 with a 55W processor power envelope and the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MV 3.20 GHz with a 90W processor power envelope.

In the coming weeks, Intel will introduce its first dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed "Paxville." Originally scheduled in 2006, Paxville will deliver improved performance for both dual-processor (DP) and multi-processor (MP)-based servers.

In early 2006, Intel will deliver another server platform, codenamed "Bensley," including a dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed "Dempsey," a chipset optimized for dual-core, codenamed Blackford. At that time Intel will bring to market a dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based workstation platform, codenamed "Glidewell," also including the Dempsey processor, and a new chipset, optimized for workstations, codenamed "Greencreek."

To further efforts in reducing server power consumption, in 2006 Intel also plans to deliver a new dual-core processor, codenamed "Sossaman," targeted at power-constrained environments.

Later in 2006, Intel will introduce a dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based platform, codenamed "Woodcrest," designed on Intel's 65-nanometer technology manufacturing process. intel says that Woodcrest will offer improved performance and greatly reduced power consumption.
