Colfax International, a leading builder of highly customized high-performance computing systems, today announced the adoption of the newly launched Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor Model 280 and Model 880 with Direct Connect Architecture. Available across Colfax International’s line of thermally efficient servers and workstations, the newest AMD Opteron processors fit within platforms based on the existing 95W power infrastructure offering improved performance/watt, while also supporting AMD PowerNow!™ technology with Optimized Power Management.
“With the availability of the Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors Model 280 and Model 880 with Colfax systems, Colfax International now expands its AMD64 dual-core product line offering to our customer base,” said Mike Fay, Vice President, Colfax International. “As a result, customers can take advantage of this industry-transforming dual-core technology to further amplify performance and efficiency on a diverse selection of Colfax servers and workstations.”
