AMD Adds 12- and 16-Core Chips to the AMD Opteron 6300 Series

AMD has made available its new 12- and 16-core AMD Opteron 6300 Series server processors, code named "Warsaw."

Designed for enterprise workloads, the new AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors feature the "Piledriver" core and are fully socket and software compatible with the existing AMD Opteron 6300 Series.

The new AMD Opteron 6338P (12 core) and 6370P (16 core) processors are optimized to handle the heavily virtualized workloads found in enterprise environments, including complex compute needs of data analysis, xSQL and traditional databases.

"The Opteron 6338P and 6370P processors are server CPUs optimized to deliver improved performance per-watt for virtualized private cloud deployments with less power and at lower cost points," said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, corporate vice president and general manager, Server Business Unit, AMD.

The new AMD Opteron 6338P and 6370P processors are available today through Penguin and Avnet system integrators and have been qualified for servers from Sugon and Supermicro at a starting price of $377 and $598, respectively.
