AMD releases new Opteron processors for entry to mid level servers.

India, Dec. 5 -- Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has unveiled nine new processors in their Opteron lineup. The new processors take advantage of AMD's Piledriver cores, which is a significant step-up from the Bulldozer cores. The new Opteron lineup is aimed towards those wishing to setup servers that would fall within the gamut of entry-mid level.

The Opteron 4300 and 3300 series offer up to 15 percent better performance with respect to the previous gen Opteron processors and a significant 24 percent improvement in performance per watt.

"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. "These new processors are ideal for cloud providers, web hosts and small- and medium-sized businesses who want to address their space and power constraints. With a simple upgrade, existing customers can obtain more performance and improved energy efficiency and new customers will obtain compelling value and ROI."

Offering configurations of 8,6 and 4 cores, the Opteron 4300 series has a maximum base clock of 3.5GHz while the 3300 series maxes out at 2.8 GHz. AMD boasts that along with the enhanced performance, the series 4300 processors are the "only x86 processors that support ultra-low voltage 1.25v memory."
