AMD Launches New Opteron Processor For Web Servers

AMD today announced the latest solution as part of its Web/Cloud initiative with the launch of the new AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor.

Designed for dedicated Web hosting companies, AMD claims that its new platform delivers up to 38% better price performance and up to 19% less power per core than the competition; ECC memory and server reliability features at a low price-point; fast hardware payback - In as few as 7 months hosting fees can cover hardware costs; and efficient economics for the Cloud with twice the core density per rack.

Since the launch of its new core server architecture, and AMD Opteron 4200 and 6200 Series processors last November, AMD unveiled a disruptive server strategy and intentions to leverage its graphics IP while driving down the power in future SoC offerings. As part of accelerating this, AMD recently announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Cloud pioneer SeaMicro.

The AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform is targeted to the dense, power efficient 1P Web hosting/Web server market. Available in either 4- or 8-core CPUs, the AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor is shipping today in platforms from MSI, Tyan, Fujitsu and Dell. Based on the "Bulldozer" core, the AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform leverages Socket AM3+ and provides the cost savings associated with a "desktop-like" infrastructure, yet still offers server-class reliability, enterprise-class silicon validation/testing, security features and server OS certification.
