Press release, March 20; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 20 March 2012]

AMD has announced the latest solution as part of its ongoing Web/Cloud initiative with the launch of the new AMD Opteron 3200 series processor.

Dedicated web hosting customers seeking enterprise-class reliability have a new choice that delivers great value with up to 38% better price performance and up to 19% less power per core than the competition, as well as ECC memory and server reliability features at a low price-point; fast hardware payback – in as few as seven months hosting fees can cover hardware costs – up to 14% quicker than with the competition; efficient economics for the cloud with twice the core density per rack, AMD claimed.

The AMD Opteron 3000 series platform is targeted to the dense, power efficient 1P web hosting/web server market. Available in either 4- or 8-core CPUs, the AMD Opteron 3200 series processor is shipping in platforms from Micro-Star International (MSI), Tyan, Fujitsu and Dell. Based on the Bulldozer core, the AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform leverages Socket AM3+ and provides customers with the cost savings associated with a desktop-like infrastructure, yet still offers server-class reliability, enterprise-class silicon validation/testing, security features and server OS certification.
