Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ processors with Direct Connect Architecture introduce several new features including quad-core upgradeability, AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™), and energy efficient DDR2 memory. In addition, Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors are designed to advance AMD’s performance-per-watt capabilities and leverage the proven technologies introduced in 2003 with first-generation AMD Opteron processors.

Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors are offered in three series: the 1000 Series (up to 1P/2-core), the 2000 Series (up to 2P/4-core), and the 8000 Series (4P/8-core to 8P/16-core). The 1000 Series is built on AMD’s new Socket AM2. The 2000 Series and 8000 Series are built on AMD’s new Socket F (1207). Features Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ Processor Benefits

Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ processors with DDR2 memory extend the industry-leading performance trajectory established by first-generation AMD Opteron processors while offering a seamless upgrade path to quad-core performance and leading-edge solutions to help run your business applications.

AMD Opteron processors feature a Common Core Architecture that is consistent across 1-way, 2-way, 4-way, and 8-way systems and is also consistent with previous AMD Opteron processors, helping minimize the cost of transition and maximize past investments in software optimization.

AMD64 technology

• Runs existing installed base of 32-bit applications and operating systems at peak performance, while providing a 64-bit capable migration path
• Designed to enable 64-bit computing while remaining compatible with the vast x86 software infrastructure
• Enables a single architecture across 32- and 64-bit environments

Direct Connect Architecture

• AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture helps eliminate the bottlenecks inherent in traditional front-side bus architectures
• Direct Connect Architecture connects the processors, integrated memory controller, and I/O directly to the CPU and communicates at CPU speed
• HyperTransport™ technology provides a scalable bandwidth interconnect between processors, I/O subsystems, and other chipsets, with up to three coherent HyperTransport technology links providing up to 24.0 GB/s peak bandwidth per processor
• Integrated Memory Controller on-die DDR2 DRAM memory controller offers available memory bandwidth up to 10.7 GB/s (with DDR2-667) per processor

Quad-core upgradeability

• AMD Opteron processors with DDR2 memory are designed to offer a seamless upgrade path from dual-core to quad-core when they are available in 2007 in the same thermal envelope to help leverage existing investments
• Maintain the same platform at the same power efficiency

AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™)

• Hardware assisted AMD Virtualization™ and Direct Connect Architecture provide a balanced approach to help improve virtualization performance, enabling more virtual machines to run per server
• AMD-V™ reduces overhead by selectively intercepting instructions destined for guest environments
• Direct Connect Architecture helps guests run at near native speed
• Virtualization-aware integrated memory controller provides efficient isolation of virtual machine memory

Enhanced performance-per watt

• Energy-efficient DDR2 memory uses up to 30% less power than DDR1 and up to 58% less power than FBDIMM
• AMD PowerNow!™ technology with Optimized Power Management can deliver performance on demand while minimizing power consumption
• Consistent standard power roadmap with low-power options
• DDR2 platforms can upgrade to quad-core AMD Opteron™ processors in 2007 within existing thermal bands for significantly better performance-per-watt

Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core?

It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance.

What makes a PC tick? Is it the processor, graphics card, RAM, or a plethora of other peripherals. It’s all those and more, but none would be much use without a means of connecting said components in an efficient manner. That’s where your humble motherboard comes in. Its job is to ensure that all devices can communicate correctly, and the beating heart of any motherboard is the chipset it’s based upon.
