Gateway Servers to Offer New Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors
Increased performance and improved energy consumption provide Gateway’s customers with leading technology and offer cost saving benefits
Irvine, Calif. --
Gateway, Inc. (NYSE: GTW), the nation’s third largest PC vendor, will offer the powerful new Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processors in its entry-level tower server and complete line of rackmount servers.
The new AMD (NYSE: AMD) processors feature four cores on one piece of silicon in the same thermal envelopes as the previous generation of dual-core AMD Opteron processors, for an increase in performance without an increase in heat generation. AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture allows the processors to be connected directly to one another and an I/O and memory subsystem to be directly connected to each processor. The new processors’ improved energy efficiency features help control operational costs of data centers by reducing processor power consumption, thereby reducing heat generation and decreasing the strain on cooling systems.
“Our customers have been extremely pleased with our previous AMD Opteron processor-based servers,” said Tim Diefenthaler, Gateway senior director, professional product management. “Once again, AMD is bringing leading-edge technology with significant benefits to our servers and, ultimately, our customers.”
The new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors will be offered on the Gateway E-9232T tower server, and the E-9722R, E-9522R and E-9422R rack mount servers.
The Gateway E-9232T features a low price point and compelling technologies, making it an affordable, yet powerful server that can help small- and medium-sized businesses run efficiently and securely.
Gateway’s 1U, 2U and 3U rackmount servers, the E-9422R, E-9522R and E-9722R, include leading improved serviceability, integrated RAID, Gateway Lights Out (GLO) system management and optional low-cost remote control K/V/M (keyboard, video, mouse). They also support both SAS and SATA II hard drives in the same system. Their powerful technologies and scalability features make them ideal for large, demanding office environments, but they are also cost-effective solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses. In March, the Gateway E-9722R server won the prestigious Best of FOSE Award in the enterprise hardware category.
“We’re pleased to work with Gateway to help bring advanced technology with increased performance and cost savings to their business customers,” said Patrick Patla, Director of Product Management, Server/Workstation Division, AMD. “Our new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors operate within the same socket and thermal envelopes as our current generation of dual-core processors. Customers not only get increased performance, but also increased energy efficiencies, which help reduce power consumption. This advantage can be quite significant in today’s demanding server environments.”
