AMD debuts 12 Opteron CPUs, including 40W chips

Posted on Wednesday, April 22 2009 @ 22:18:54 CEST by

AMD has introduced 12 new Opteron EE processors today, with two of them having an ACP rating of just 40W.

Here's a look at the new AMD 45nm Shanghai based Opteron chips, all of them are quad-core models:
  • Opteron 2373 EE: 2.1GHz, 40W
  • Opteron 2377 EE: 2.3GHz, 40W
  • Opteron 2379 HE: 2.4GHz, 55W
  • Opteron 8379 HE: 2.4GHz, 55W
  • Opteron 2381 HE: 2.5GHz, 55W
  • Opteron 8381 HE: 2.5GHz, 55W
  • Opteron 2387: 2.8GHz, 75W
  • Opteron 8387: 2.8GHz, 75W
  • Opteron 2389: 2.9GHz, 75W
  • Opteron 8389: 2.9GHz, 75W
  • Opteron 2393 SE: 3.1GHz, 105W
  • Opteron 8393 SE: 3.1GHz, 105W
  • Rushing in a new era of power efficiency, AMD (NYSE: AMD) today introduced the 45nm Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ EE processor with AMD’s lowest x86 quad-core server power band. The new 40W ACP processor is designed for very dense data center environments such as those built for cloud computing, web serving, or other highly dense environments. It offers a full suite of virtualization and power management capabilities so customers do not have to compromise on feature sets in order to deploy very low power servers.

    “Adding the 40 watt EE power band to the Quad-Core AMD Opteron line-up helps our customers achieve maximum value for their unique data center needs across the board,” said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager, Server Workstation Business, AMD. “The EE processor is ideal for cloud computing environments, which demand both extreme energy efficiency and a balanced system that can handle high transactional demands.”

    The Quad-Core AMD Opteron EE processor adds significant power efficiency improvements over the Quad-Core AMD Opteron HE processor within the same platform with a 13 percent reduction in platform-level power consumption1 and up to a 14 percent reduction in processor power at idle2. At the same performance level, the new EE processor delivers up to 62 percent improved performance-per-watt over the previous generation3. [AMD Opteron processor Model 2377 EE (SPECpower_ssj™2008 overall 1088 ssj_ops/watt, 342,240 ssj_ops at 192W @ 100% target load) compared to AMD Opteron™ processor Model 2381 HE (SPECpower_ssj™2008 overall 1037 ssj_ops/watt, 359,007 ssj_ops at 220W @ 100% target load) and AMD Opteron processor Model 2377 EE (“Shanghai”) (SPECpower_ssj™2008 overall 1129 ssj_ops/watt, 340,801 ssj_ops at 185W @ 100% target load) compared to AMD Opteron™ processor Model 2356 (“Barcelona”) ( SPECpower_ssj™2008 overall 697 ssj_ops/watt, 301,617 ssj_ops at 278W @ 100% target load)]

    AMD also announced new, high performing processors available in the HE, standard, and SE power bands, as well as support for HyperTransport™ 3 technology and a new fine-tuning feature called AMD Core Select, which enables IT managers to turn off one or more cores, helping them to fine tune their hardware for their specific operating conditions and workloads.
