New AMD Opteron Processor Delivers the Ultimate in Performance, Scalability and Efficiency

(PresseBox) (Sunnyvale, CA, ) AMD (NYSE: AMD) has launched the Opteron 6200 and 4200 Series Embedded processors. These new embedded server processors are designed for high-end embedded systems such as storage, telecommunications and networking infrastructure. Select models are planned to be available for embedded market's longevity need of seven years.

The AMD Opteron 6200 Series Embedded processor is the world's first 16-core x86 embedded processor, delivering a rich mix of performance, scalability and efficiency for today's highly threaded embedded environments such as embedded servers, networking, and storage systems. These high performance scalable applications benefit from the modular design that features up to 33% more cores1 and up to 35% greater performance2 in a smaller silicon footprint3 than AMD's current products.

The new AMD Opteron 4200 Series Embedded processor-the world's lowest power server processor, at fewer than 5 watts per core4 -while designed for challenging embedded enterprise workloads still delivers a performance punch in a given system power budget and provides robust configurations in a platform that leverages previous versions of AMD Opteron 4000 Series Embedded processors.
