Monarch Empro and ULB Get Latest Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors
Venerable Lines of Workstations and Servers Get New Ticker, Lease on Life
From their headquarters in Tucker, GA, Monarch Computer announced today the addition of the latest Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors, Model 880 and Model 280, to the Monarch Empro and Ultimate Linux Box (ULB) line of servers and workstations. The new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors re-invigorate two old and venerable lines of Monarch servers and workstations by providing them with one of the best platforms for x86 computing. Monarch Empro and ULB servers and workstations with Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors come in one, two, and four processor configurations, meaning that customers can purchase systems with up to eight CPU cores at the highest performance available.
High Performance – Low Power
The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors have the same wattage profile as their single-core processors, about 95 watts. This means that the new Empro and ULB systems with the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 880 or Model 280 offer greater performance without increasing heat or power requirements.
“It’s unbelievable what AMD did with the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor,” said Trey Harris, founder of Monarch Computer. “Not only can we now offer four-way (8-core) systems, but we can offer two-way (4-core) servers and workstations in smaller form factors than previously possible. You want four cores sitting in a tower on your desk for CAD? Done.”
“As the undisputed leader in x86 dual-core processing performance and energy cost-savings for multi-processor capable servers and workstations, AMD collaborates with companies like Monarch to deliver leading-edge, 64-bit performance to various computing environments,” said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD (NYSE: AMD).
Monarch’s dual-core servers and workstations feature high-density RAID arrays larger than four terabytes with Adaptec and 3-Ware RAID controllers, and hard drives from Western Digital, Maxtor, and Hitachi. Monarch’s two-way Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor-based servers support up to 32 GB of DDR memory, while the four-way Empro servers support up to 64GB of DDR memory. Monarch Empro and ULB Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor-based Workstations support up to four monitors using up to two PCI-E video cards from NVidia and ATI. New Empro Workstations support from 512 MB up to 32 GB of DDR memory and storage option from 40GB to over 1 TB.
According to Mr. Harris, “Nobody puts the time and effort we do into building each server and workstation. Every power cable is tucked neatly out of the way, every ribbon cable folded and tied to reduce its effect on airflow, and every last thing is checked by an experienced quality control professional. With the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor, your new Monarch Empro will not only be a work of art, it will be a serious performer as well.”
