Providing a balanced approach to embedded system design
The AMD Opteron™ processor helps enable a breakthrough in high-performance, low power processing for edge-of-enterprise markets including storage and telecommunications, as well as more traditional embedded markets such as security and medical imaging, military systems, and single-board computing. AMD64 technology with Direct Connect Architecture helps provide a balanced foundation for embedded systems. Based on the industry-standard x86 platform, AMD64 delivers the right match of processing power, memory performance, I/O throughput, and scalability. Add the vision of 32- and 64-bit application support with native multi-core computing in a consistent thermal envelope and many embedded designers are finding their AMD Opteron™ processor-based next-generation systems deliver superior application performance.
