AMD Announces Three New Dual-Core AMD Opteron Processors
AMD announced three new models in the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor family.
The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 885 for up to eight-way/16-core enterprise-class servers and Model 285 for high performance two-way/four-core workstations and servers are immediately available. The Model 185 for one-way/two-core servers and workstations is expected to be available within 30 days.
IBM, one of the first vendors to ship Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor-based platforms, will support the new processors in its servers and workstation product lines, with the BladeCenter LS20, e326m server, and IntelliStation A Pro. The LS20 blade and e326m rack server will utilize the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 285. Additionally, the updated IntelliStation A Pro offers a robust 32- and 64-bit computing platform for high-quality visualization in the fields of engineering and digital content, digital rendering and chemical and petroleum research.
Sun Microsystems revamped and expanded its entire x64 AMD Opteron processor-based server, workstation and High Performance Computing (HPC) product lines with AMD's latest dual-core processors.
HP will add the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors across its portfolio of AMD Opteron processor-based HP ProLiant servers and workstations. Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 885 will add to the performance of the four-processor/eight-core HP ProLiant DL 585 and BL45p, while Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 285 will do the same for the two-processor/four-core HP ProLiant DL385 and DL145 G2, plus the HP ProLiant BL25p and BL35p server blades. HP will also match Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 285 with the performance-class HP xw9300 Workstation that features multi-processing capabilities and support for dual PCI-Express x16 graphics. Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors bring the power of four cores to HP’s xw9300 Workstation for scientists, engineers, designers and digital artists.
The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 885 is priced at $2,149 in 1,000-unit quantities and the Model 285 is priced at $1,051 in 1,000-unit quantities.
