Offers AMD’s highest performance per watt

AMD today announced the immediate availability of three new members of the Six-Core AMD Opteron server processor family

These new additions are set to specifically address rising demand for balanced systems with increased performance and greater power-efficiency.

“Since our initial introduction of multi-core processors for the server market, it’s been AMD’s mission to help IT managers reduce datacentre energy costs without compromising performance,” said Patrick Patla, VP and GM of server business, AMD.

“These new lower power Six-Core AMD Opteron processors feature the highest performance-per-watt that we have brought to market, and help drive down power consumption while addressing the shifting cloud and Web landscape of today’s datacentre.  And with six cores of compute power and direct connect architecture, these processors deliver no-compromise performance.”

“Customers are using HP ProLiant G6 server solutions, which offer up to 45% better performance than previous generations, enabling customers to get more value out of their IT dollar,” said Jim Ganthier, vice president of marketing, industry standard servers, HP.  “The combination of HP ProLiant G6 server technology and Six-Core AMD Opteron HE processors provide customers with powerful and energy-efficient technology for a superior return on their server investment.”
