AMD Launches New Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors forOne-Socket Servers and Workstations
—Platforms from HP, Dell,and Cray to deliver world-class performance and efficiency to customers rangingfrom SMBs to some of the world’s largest supercomputers—
SUNNYVALE, Calif.— June 3, 2008— Addressing customer demand for higher performing, uni-processor x86solutions, AMD (NYSE: AMD) today introduced three new Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ 1300 Series processors for one-socket servers and workstations. Global tier-one OEMs including HP and Dell plan to incorporate the newprocessors into upcoming platforms, and global supercomputer leader Cray is nowshipping Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processor-based Cray XT4™systems and upgrading some of the world’s fastest supercomputers toincorporate Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors.
“AMD is committed to helping commercial customers who rely on 1Pserver and workstation solutions to take advantage of the same enterprise-classperformance and energy-efficiency that power the largest globalbusinesses,” said Patrick Patla, director, Server and WorkstationBusiness, AMD. “From entry-level servers and complex workstationenvironments to some of the largest supercomputers in the world, the newQuad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors are designed to address the keycustomer priorities of performance, performance-per-watt andperformance-per-dollar.”
Enterprise-levelCapabilities for 1P Solutions
The new Quad-Core AMD Opteron Models1352 (2.1GHz), 1354 (2.2GHz), and 1356 (2.3GHz) processors are designed toempower small to mid-market customers to meet growing IT and budgetary demandsand increase business productivity. With the enhanced computingcapabilities of AMD’s native quad-core architecture in the same socketand thermal requirements as previous AMD Opteron 1000 Series processors, andindustry-leading power management and virtualization innovations such asEnhanced AMD PowerNow!™ technology and Rapid Virtualization Indexing,Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Series processors provide small and mid-sizecustomers an energy-efficient yet powerful computing platform that can maximizeIT resources and grow with their business demands.
“Customers looking to maximizeapplication performance at an affordable price point can leverage the HPProLiant ML115 G5 server and HP xw4550 workstation which are based on the AMDOpteron 1000 Series processors,” said Paul Gottsegen, vice president,marketing, Industry Standard Servers, HP. “HP has the largest AMDOpteron-based server portfolio in the industry, and the new Quad-Core AMDOpteron 1300 Series processors increase the value provided by our serversolutions.”
Customers have increasinglyrecognized the superior performance and efficiency benefits of the AMD Opteronprocessor in one-socket systems. Based on the 2008 first quarter numbersfrom IDC¹, the AMD Opteron processor now powers 14.3 percent of the one-socketx86 server systems worldwide. Additionally, AMD’s market share inone-socket x86 server systems in the U.S. has grown to 23.7 percent inthe first quarter of 2008. This includes an average market share increaseof 2.7 percent in the U.S.over the past three quarters.
"Dell understands that SMB customers require simplified computingsolutions that do not sacrifice the performance or reliability needed to growtheir businesses," said Sally Stevens, director of PowerEdge Servers, DellProduct Group. "Dell’s PowerEdge T105 entry-level server combinedwith the price/performance capabilities of the Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300Series processor enables us to deliver an economical and simple IT solution forsmall business owners."
Scalability andPerformance for High-Performance Computing
Built on AMD’s unmatchedDirect Connect Architecture which helps eliminate the bottlenecksassociated with front-side bus architectures, Quad-Core AMD Opteron 1300 Seriesprocessors deliver the world-class performance, scalability and overall systemefficiency necessary to power one of the world’s largest high-performancecomputing (HPC) systems. By upgrading to the new Quad-Core AMD Opteronprocessors, Oak Ridge National Laboratory more than doubled the computeperformance of its Cray XT4™ system, code-named ‘Jaguar,” tomore than 260 teraflops to help advance scientific research.
“AMD’s industry-leading native multi-core architecture and SameSocket Technology help Cray deliver the world’s most scalable and upgradeablesupercomputers, enabling our customers to tackle the most challengingscientific and engineering problems of our time,” said Peter Ungaro,president and CEO of Cray. “The collaboration between Cray and AMDcontinues to bring new levels of scalability and sustained performance to highperformance computing, as shown by Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s recentupgrade to its Cray XT4 system to Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, which isone of the fastest and most efficient supercomputers in the world today.”
