AMD today announced software support from Novell, Red Hat and Sun for AMD64 multi-core technology and recommended ISVs license software applications by socket. This follows a recent demonstration of the industry's first x86 dual-core processor last week at AMD’s Austin facilities where four x86-based dual-core AMD Opteron processors powered an HP ProLiant DL585 server.
The upcoming dual-core AMD64 processors are designed to run with current versions of Linux, Solaris and Windows as well as existing x86- and AMD64-based applications without requiring any software modifications. This follows the AMD customer-centric approach of safeguarding software investments while delivering industry-leading processor innovation.
