The AMD Opteron
A1100 SoC represents a key milestone for establishing ARM in the data center as well.
"The Piledriver core architecture shared by the AMD Opteron
4300 and 3300 Series processors provides optimized performance, power and price for today's customer," says Suresh Gopalakrishnan, general manager, Server Business Unit, AMD.
AMD last month started shipping the Opteron
6300 server chips for midrange and high-end servers.

Designed for dedicated Web hosting customers, AMD Opteron
3200 Series processor provides up to 38% better price performance and up to 19% less power per core, according to AMD.
TYAN is exhibiting servers powered by AMD Opteron
6200 and AMD Opteron
4200 processors at the Supercomputing 2011 trade show, which runs from Nov.
When powered by new 12-core AMD Opteron
6100 Series (Socket G34) processors, the TwinBlade enables up to 2,880 processing cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack.
AMD continues its solid leadership in supercomputing, with four of the Top 5 systems depending on AMD for record-setting performance including another recently upgraded Cray XT5 system "Kraken." While the six-core AMD Opteron
processor is now the industryleading CPU for supercomputing, in the first quarter of 2010, AMD plans to deliver HPC customers the world's first 8- and 12-core x86 processors, said a top official.
The AMD Opteron
6100 Series processor (codename "Magny-Cours") has been designed to deliver up to a 100 per cent increase in compute density and multi-threading capability as compared to its six-core predecessor, with 4 channels of DDR-3 memory and new power management and virtualization features.
The workstation taps the new power of the Opteron
series processors to deliver higher productivity, especially for multi-threaded applications, multi-tasking and mega-tasking environments that features offering up to 12 processing cores of processors and a 34 percent improve performance per watt from its previous generation quad-cores processors.
According to the company, the HP xw9400 Workstation leverages the new AMD Opteron
processors to deliver higher productivity, especially for multi-threaded applications, multi-tasking and mega-tasking environments.
The company said that the dedicated servers are available in five different versions, with an entry level model (the 1&1 Business 1 with Dual-Core AMD Opteron
1216 Processor, RAID 1, 2 x 250GB HDD and 2GB RAM) costing GBP79.99/month and the flagship model, the 1&1 Enterprise Server II (Quad-Core AMD Opteron
2352 Processors, RAID 5, 3 x 750GB HDD and 16GB RAM), costing GBP259.99/month.
