Meanwhile AMD yet has to provide 8-way servers and popularize its 4-way machines, some of the company’s closest partners begin to talk on 32-way large scale AMD Opteron servers.
During this year’s Hot Chips, a symposium on high performance microprocessors, Rich Oehler and Rajesh Kota from Newisys, a subsidiary of Sanmina-SCI that is concentrated on developing and making servers based on AMD64-technology, read a key-not called “Enabling large scale, 32-way Opteron Enterprise Servers”, covering high-end AMD Opteron-based machines with 32 microprocessors inside. The company’s web-site also claims “Newisys plans to build on the foundation to deliver robust enterprise-class server designs that deliver even greater price performance in the 4-32 way CPU multiprocessing computing space”.
