AMD lowers performance guidance for Bulldozer Opteron CPUs

Posted on Tuesday, July 26 2011 @ 22:31:31 CEST by

Bright Side of News reports AMD has lowered its performance projections for the Bulldozer-based Opteron chips. The company now says Bulldozer will deliver a 35 percent performance increase, while it previously talked about a 50 percent increase in throughput.
While we are currently working on a detailed analysis of the AMD Second Quarter 2011 earnings call (which should follow within a few hours), we wanted to immediately share this detail in a breakout article: Without blinking an eye, AMD just lowered the performance guidance for their 16-core product Interlagos from 50% to 35%. Considering that the CPU integrates 33% more integer compute resources, this figure looks somewhat disappointing.

Quoting Thomas Seifert, interim CEO and CFO at AMD, during yesterdays earnings call: "The Interlagos platform is our first server offering, optimized for today's cloud datacenters and the architecture excels at compute-intensive and HPC workloads, where it will deliver up to 35% performance improvements compared to our current offerings."
