Today AMD announced that the company is now shipping five new Opteron 6100 Series processors optimimized for low power consumption and increased applications performance. Acer, Dell and HP plan on launching new systems based on the new chips this quarter.
These new server CPUs deliver greater performance than we‟ve ever had before,” said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager, Server Business, AMD. “When we launched the AMD Opteron 6000 Series platforms last year, we eliminated the “4P tax‟ and met market demands for higher performance-per-dollar- per-watt. Our customers’ benchmarks and testimonials bear out these improvements, and these five new parts—and the rave reviews—prove that we continue to deliver on our vision.”
