AMD Shanghai 35 percent faster than Barcelona?

Posted on Thursday, October 02 2008 @ 22:00:06 CEST by

Pat Patla, general manager of AMD's server and workstation chip business, said in an interview that the new 45nm "Shanghai" Opteron processors will be 35 percent faster than Barcelona on average, while using 35 percent less power:
Pat Patla, general manager of AMD’s server and workstation chip business, said in an interview with IDG News Service that AMD Opteron “Shanghai” would “give a 35% performance boost over Barcelona on average” and would also trim power consumption by 35%, which automatically transforms into colossal performance per watt improvements over existing quad-core AMD Opteron processors.

The advances are direct results of larger 6MB level-three cache, thinner 45nm process technology as well as micro-architectural improvements that boost instructions per clock (IPC) throughput.

Mr. Patla indicated that the first 45nm quad-core AMD Opteron chips that are scheduled to arrive in Q4 2008 will fit into mainstream 75W thermal envelope, whereas other models – which are due in Q1 2009 – will offer 55W thermal design power to fit into blade servers as well as 105W thermal envelop for high-performance machines.
