Aspect Computer Corporation Introduces the Voyager Workstation Series Featuring AMD's Multiprocessing Architecture
SOMERSET, NJ --
Aspect Computer Corp. today announced the launch of the Voyager Workstation Series based on the new AMD Athlon™ MP processor and the AMD-760™ MP multiprocessing chipset. The Voyager Workstation Series is powered by dual AMD Athlon MP processors, and is an ideal solution for Digital Content Creation and CAD applications.
"Aspect is very impressed by the performance of the AMD Athlon™ MP processor," said Daniel Brundage, Product Manager for Server/Workstation Products. "The Aspect Voyager Workstation Series will now be able to deliver unsurpassed performance at extremely aggressive price points for its class."
The Aspect Voyager Workstation Series is currently available exclusively through Channel-Micro Distributors.
About the AMD Athlon™ MP Processor
The AMD Athlon MP processor is a seventh-generation x86 processor designed for high-performance multiprocessing servers and workstations. It provides up to a 38 percent increase over widely available x86 multiprocessor-based systems on benchmarks such as WebBench, ServerBench and 3D Studio Max.
A key advantage of AMD's multiprocessing platform is Smart MP technology, which greatly enhances overall platform performance by increasing data movement between the two CPUs, chipset and memory system. Smart MP technology features dual point-to-point, high-speed 266MHz system buses with Error Correcting Code (ECC) support designed to provide up to 2.1GB per second per CPU of bus bandwidth in a dual-processor system. Smart MP technology also has an optimized Modified Owner Exclusive Shared Invalid (MOESI) cache coherency protocol that manages data and memory traffic in a multiprocessing environment.
The AMD Athlon MP processor, with stable Socket A infrastructure and support for DDR memory technology, has a high performance full-speed cache with hardware data pre-fetch, a fully pipelined superscalar floating point engine, and an exclusive L2 Translation Look-aside Buffer (TLB). It also incorporates 3DNow!™ Professional technology, which has 52 new instructions that extend AMD's 3DNow!™ technology, enabling smoother, richer and more lifelike images, more precise digital audio and an enriched Internet experience.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy awarded AMD an ENERGY STAR® Certificate of Recognition for its energy-efficient processors, including the AMD Athlon MP processor. These processors help manufacturers meet stringent ENERGY STAR specifications for a variety of appliances, equipment and other products. Products with the ENERGY STAR label are designed to use less energy, save money and help protect the environment.
AMD Athlon MP processors are manufactured using AMD's 0.18-micron copper process technology at Fab 30 in Dresden, Germany.
