  • A shift in customers’ key focus areas is causing IT companies like AMD to respond with more and varied offerings to meet the broad spectrum of customer demands. A significant portion of the server market is interested in performance that will run workloads such as virtualization, database and HPC, while still another is much more interested in energy efficiency and true value for the IT dollar spent. This group typically runs very dense workloads such as cloud deployments, large web farms, huge file/print and email operations that do not require as much compute power, but call for an energy efficient solution at a reasonable price.
  • AMD has responded by working with OEM manufacturers to develop usage-based platforms designed to run the most common and important workloads, as well as making sure each customer gets the most value for his IT budget dollar. More performance-per-watt has been an AMD Opteron processor staple in past generations, and is certainly top of mind with the next generation of products.
  • The new Six-Core AMD Opteron processor, code named “Istanbul”, is the industry’s only six-core processor with Direct Connect Architecture. We are now launching the last product within the Istanbul product line, EE.Our performance labs are reporting up to 33% more performance over previous generation EE; and up to 31% higher performance-per-watt than Shanghai 75W.Server products containing the Six-Core AMD Opteron processor will be available from Dell and HP thru their custom systems programs. Sun and IBM are not supporting EE. Additionally, regional partners and channel sales will be carrying this product.
