Upgrade your server with the speed, performance and energy efficiency that your network demands with the 12-core Opteron 6168. This powerful processor offers you the versatility you need at a price point you??l appreciate. Not only will you enjoy the computing power of twelve cores, but you??l also have the same footprint, power usage and thermal envelopes as previous AMD counterparts.
The twelve cores per socket offer improved performance for multithreaded environments like database and Web serving. HT Assist reduces probe traffic for cache sensitive applications. You??l also enjoy the power-saving features. Energy efficiency innovations include Cool????uiet, Smart Fetch and AMD CoolCore to ensure minimal cost and impact on the environment.
AMD Opteron processors also offer support for Virtualization Technology. You can run virtual environments on one system with ease, allowing you to use legacy programs on a separate operating system. Opteron processors also allow for extended migration of virtual machines between physical machines running AMD Opteron processors. Add the convenience and power of multi-core processing and enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency with an AMD Opteron 6168 today!
TWELVE-COREThe AMD Opteron 6168 integrates of up to 12 cores within the same package, and each core having its own L1 and L2 caches, and a shared 12MB L3 cache, offering improved performance and performance/watt (compared to prior generations) for multithreaded environments like virtualization, database, and web serving.
ADVANCED POWER MANAGEMENTThe AMD Opteron 6168 boasts AMD CoolCore technology, AMD PowerNow! technology, Enhanced C1 state, AMD CoolSpeed technology, APML (in APML enabled platforms) for unprecedented power efficiency.
MULTIPLE MEMORY SUPPORTThe AMD Opteron 6168 supports Quad-Channel LV & U/RDDR 3, ECC, and supports for on-line spare memory, up to 3 DIMMs/channel and 12 DIMMs per CPU, which helps to reduce overall power consumption and improve overall system performance.
AMD64 WITH DIRECT CONNECT ARCHITECTURE 2.0AMD64 technology allows the Opteron 6168 processor to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling a new generation of powerful 64-bit software applications. Moreover, the Opteron 6168 is built on AMD?? revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, where processors are directly connected to one another. An I/O and memory subsystem are also directly connected to each processor, helping improve overall system performance and efficiency.
HYPERTRANSPORT 3.0 TECHNOLOGY WITH HT ASSISTHyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. HT 3.0 technology offers the processor up to a maximum 6.4GT/s interconnect rate. HT Assist helps to increase coherent memory bandwidth and reduce latency in multi-node systems by reducing cache probe traffic between cores, resulting in faster queries that can increase performance for cache sensitive applications such as database, virtualization, and compute intensive applications.
AMD VIRTUALIZATION (AMD-V) 2.0Virtualization allows multiple operating systems, applications, or user sessions to run simultaneously on a single computing system. AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) is a set of unique on-chip features that help AMD processor-based servers and clients run multiple operating systems and applications on a single machine by improving the efficiency of virtualization software. AMD-V technology allows you to better utilize your resources, which makes your client systems, servers, and datacenters more effective.
