4300 and 3300 series offer up to 15 percent better performance with respect to the previous gen Opteron
processors and a significant 24 percent improvement in performance per watt.
Because CFD is considered a key factor in optimizing the aerodynamic performance of race cars, the new AMD Opteron
processor-powered supercomputer is expected to have a significant effect on reducing lap times, putting the Sauber team in a position to score valuable World Championship points.
Hence, unlike Intel's Itanium, Opteron
can run 32- and 64-bit applications simultanceously.
chip, the first microprocessor to natively support both 32- and 64-bit applications, represents both an enormous challenge for the struggling chip maker (the company has been losing money for years) and a significant challenge to Intel, the world's biggest chip maker and the OEM with a stranglehold on the desktop market--and large market share in the enterprise as well.
WIN Enterprises is excited to be the first AMD embedded industry technology partner to provide a single board computing solution based on the Second-Generation AMD Opteron
processor," said Matt Stevenson, Chief Architect of WIN Enterprises.
The AMD Opteron
processor launched in April 2003 to the anticipation of both the high performance computing (HPC) and enterprise IT communities and is the only server/ workstation processor to feature AMD64 technology with Direct Connect Architecture.
Barcelona' will build on this value proposition while delivering industry-changing dynamics to the x86 server market, much like the original AMD Opteron
processor did in 2003.
We are seeing an increased demand from our customers to run the Oracle Database on AMD Opteron
processor-based servers, so the availability of the Oracle Database on Linux and the developer's release of Oracle Database 10g on Windows for AMD Opteron
processor-based servers is great news for our customers," said Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Database Server Technologies, Oracle.
Top-performing AMD Opteron
processor Models 2220 and 8220 (2.
Appro combines innovative engineering design and the latest in AMD Opteron
processor technology to deliver supercomputing performance at an excellent price-performance ratio.
processors truly help maximize the price-performance equation," said Giovanni Coglitore, chief technology officer at Rackable Systems.
Porting to the AMD Opteron
processor-based systems is a natural fit for Cadence.
