New AMD Opteron 4000 Series Platform Launched

At the GigaOm Structure Cloud Computing and Internet Infrastructure conference, AMD today announced availability of the new AMD Opteron 4000 Series platform.



This is the first server platform designed from the beginning to meet the specific requirements of cloud, hyperscale data center, and SMB customers needing flexible, reliable, and power-efficient 1 and 2P systems. This platform is also available for high-end embedded systems such as telecom servers, storage, and digital signage, through AMD Embedded Solutions.



  • The AMD Opteron 4000 Series platform offers four-core and six-core performance at less than 6W per core, reduces power up to 24% over the previous generation, and allows more than double the servers within the same power budget as previous generation platforms.
  • The AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor offers price points as low as $99.
  • The AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor allows for smaller heat sinks, power supplies, and fans, as well as low-voltage memory to help improve power efficiency.
  • The platform is available with embedded industry-standard 5+2 years longevity.
  • The AMD Opteron 4000 Series platform is chipset-consistent with the 8-core and 12-core AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform and is planned to support the new Bulldozer core, planned for 2011.

New solutions have already been announced by at least MSI (MS-91F7 motherboard), SuperMicro (1012C-MRF, 1022TC-IBQF/1022TC-TF, 2022TC-BIBQRF/2022TC-BTRF) and Tyan (S8226, S8228, GT24B8226, YR190B8228).
