AMD eight-core Opteron in 2009

Posted on Thursday, July 26 2007 @ 21:24:51 CEST by


AMD showed off some more of its plans for the future today. DailyTech writes the processor maker is planning to release Sandtiger, a quad-core Opteron processor in 2009.
AMD previewed its third-generation Opteron platform during the company’s Technology Analyst. The third-generation AMD Opteron platform is set for a 2009 debut with a new Sandtiger-core processor. AMD’s current Socket 1207 platform is the Opteron’s second-generation platform and designed to accommodate Opteron revision F, Barcelona and the 45nm die-shrink Shanghai processors.

Sandtiger ups the core ante with eight-cores. AMD will manufacture the octal-core Sandtiger on a 45nm fabrication process. Sandtiger introduces HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, to AMD’s server and workstation platforms. The processor will have four HyperTransport links with a new Direct Connect 2 infrastructure.

Sandtiger will also support DDR3 memory. The third-generation AMD Opteron platform will be the first platform to support G3 Memory Extender, or G3MX, technology for larger memory capacities. The platform also supports PCI Express 2.0.
Before the launch of Sandtiger we can expect the Shanghai in 2008, which will be a 45nm shrink of the upcoming Barcelona. Shanghai will feature 6MB L3 cache and some IPC improvements.
