With all the Intel Xeon E7 news from various vendors this week, AMD is not just standing by. Penguin Computing announced immediate availability of the new Altus 1750 server, a dual socket 1U system built specifically to support the fastest clock speeds available from AMD Opteron 4100 series CPUs.
“Altus 1750 combines AMD’s industry leading multi core processors with raw GHz performance that’s uniquely ours,” said Charles Wuischpard, CEO, Penguin Computing. “As an AMD Platinum Elite partner we are fully committed to providing best-in-class AMD solutions for the scientific and financial communities.”
Penguin describes the Altus 1750 as being ideal for high frequency trading and other low latency applications that benefit from the highest frequency CPUs available. With their optimized cooling design, Penguin’s Altus servers have a higher density than comparable servers.
