AMD today announced the immediate availability of the new Six-Core AMD Opteron EE processor at 40W ACP. Delivering up to 31 percent higher performance-per-watt over standard Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, the Six-Core AMD Opteron EE processor is tailored to meet the demands of customers who need strong performance, but must trim out every watt possible in a server system and reduce the datacenter’s power draw.
- Many customers requiring this very low power processor deploy dense, large-scale IT projects where system power trumps raw performance and every watt of power savings can have significant positive impact on the bottom line
- AMD offers a wide range of energy-efficient processors; customers now have 15 low and very low power server processor choices available
- All of AMD’s low power processors are fully-featured and available with the same AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology and AMD-P features for advanced virtualization and power savings capability as standard power versions
- This 40W ACP processor is currently being integrated in custom solutions programs and will be available from system builders for cloud and Web 2.0 customers where density and low power are key considerations
