New Server Products Sport AMD’s Latest Opteron Platforms

Eleven server products are announced by manufacturers like Dell and HP that employ AMD’s Opteron 6200 Series and 4200 Series processors.

Eleven different computing innovators have announced servers employing high-performance AMD Opteron 6200 Series and low-power AMD Opteron 4200 Series processors. The new servers are based on five new AMD Opteron processors that offer increased performance without an increase in power consumption. †

Among the new servers is HP’s ProLiant Gen8 platform. Last month, HP launched two HP ProLiant Gen8 servers using the new AMD Opteron processors and plans to refresh the ProLiant DL585 G7 and the BL685c G7 later this year.

According to HP, combining the clock speed of the new AMD Opteron processors with the new HP ProLiant Gen8 features enables increased performance, simplified maintenance, and improved data center uptime. New models include:

  • HP ProLiant Gen8 DL385p — A 2U performance-based rack server designed for virtualization, database, and high-performance computing workloads.
  • HP ProLiant Gen8 BL465c — The first server blade with 2,000 cores per rack for virtualization, database, and high-performance workloads.

Dell is also expected to refresh its AMD offering with the latest AMD Opteron processors in the PowerEdge C6145, C6105, R415, R515, R715, R815, and the M915.

“Since the launch of our latest AMD Opteron processors based on our ‘Bulldozer’ core, we have seen steadily increasing demand for our high-end processors,” says Lisa Su, AMD’s senior vice president and general manager, global busines units. “The new additions to the AMD Opteron processor family, along with the latest offerings from HP and Dell, further strengthen our ability to offer greater choices.”

The five new processors tout a 100 MHz performance advantage over their predecessors. The new processors are:

  • AMD Opteron 6284 SE — 16-core 2.7 GHz, 140 watts TDP ($1,265)
  • AMD Opteron 6278 — 16-core 2.4 GHz, 115 watts TDP ($989)
  • AMD Opteron 4276 HE — 8-core 2.6 GHz, 65 watts TDP ($455)
  • AMD Opteron 4240 — 6-core 3.4 GHz, 95 watts TDP ($316)
  • AMD Opteron 4230 — 6-core 2.9 GHz, 65 watts TDP ($377)
