PSSC Labs Announces Support for the AMD Opteron™ Processor
Irvine, CA --
PSSC Labs proudly supports AMD’s newest entry into the high performance computing arena with an array of new products based on the AMD Opteron™ processor. Future PSSC Labs products based on the AMD Opteron processor include Beowulf supercomputers, database servers, network servers and, high-end workstations.
“The AMD Opteron processor is the next logical step in high performance computing,” exclaims Alex Lesser, PSSC Labs vice president. “Beowulf users are typically memory- intensive users; constantly demanding large amounts of physical memory that can be accessed very quickly by the processor. I firmly believe that Beowulf users will benefit from the performance enhancements offered by the AMD Opteron processor.”
“PSSC Labs continues to provide their customers with innovative technology solutions designed to meet their needs,” said Ben Williams, director, AMD's Server/Workstation Business Segment, AMD’s Computation Products Group. “We are confident that PSSC Labs will utilize the 32- and 64-bit capabilities of the AMD Opteron processor to continue to provide outstanding solutions for the HPC market.”
The AMD Opteron processor integrates the DDR DRAM memory controller directly into the processor, allowing for significantly faster memory access and larger physical/virtual memory address space. Traditional 32 bit processors have a four Gigabyte memory address cap. The AMD Opteron’s processors’ 40-bit and 48-bit virtual addressing allows for up to one terabyte of physical memory and 256 terabytes of virtual memory space. In addition, the memory controller operates at AMD Opteron processor’s frequency. This translates to an available memory bandwidth up to 5.3GB/s per processor.
All PSSC Labs products are custom tailored to meet end user specifications. For complete details please call PSSC Labs at 949-380-7288 or visit www.pssclabs.com
