Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has developed a new chip in an effort to please web hosting providers with a new platform for single socket, dedicated hosting.
AMD’s goal is to offer growing businesses more scalability with denser, more power-efficient environments, which will also provide customers with a “desktop-like” experience and infrastructure with server-class reliability and security.
The new AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor is said to offer up to 60 percent better performance per dollar and use up to 19 percent less power per core. It also falls in line with AMD’s cloud strategy, since these new chips are also said to offer twice the core density per rack.
According to Patrick Patla, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s Commercial Business unit, customers will have “all the benefits of a true server-class product at desktop-class price points.”
The AMD Opteron 3200 Series key specs include:
- 45W to 65W TDP
- 2.7 GHz base frequency, up to 3.7 GHz frequency using AMD Turbo CORE technology
- 2 DDR3 memory channels supporting ECC UDIMM
- 1333, 1600, 1866 MHz memory speed
- Supports 1.5V, 2Rank
- Up to 32GB memory capacity
- Supports up to 2 DIMMs per memory channel
- Total Cache: 16MB for 8-core, 8MB for 4-core
- L2 Cache: up to 8MB total
- L3 Cache: up to 8MB total
The AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor is available in either 4- or 8-core CPUs, and is integrated on platforms from MSI, Tyan, Fujitsu, and Dell.
