PSSC Labs Announces Support For The New Dual-Core
AMD Opteron™ Processor
Irvine, CA --
PSSC Labs, Inc., a leading builder of custom-configured high-performance computing systems, proudly announces support for the Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor. PSSC Labs’ offerings are designed to optimize multi-threaded applications as well as enhance performance of single-threaded applications. The new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor is an extension of the single-core AMD Opteron processor and was designed from the ground up to directly connect two cores on a single die, along with memory, I/O and dedicated caches, improving overall system performance and efficiency.
“AMD's solution to address Moore's law is becoming more obvious,” said Alex Lesser, CEO, PSSC Labs. “By adding processor cores, Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors can continue to increase performance while keeping power consumption to a minimum.”
“The newly launched Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors are ideally suited for PSSC Labs which has produced world-class Beowulf clusters to meet the supercomputing needs of governmental agencies, like NASA, as well as many of the world’s leading universities,” said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “These memory-intensive users benefit significantly from AMD’s Direct Connect Architecture which eliminates the bottlenecks associated with a front-side bus.”
The dual-core AMD64 processors maximize performance by enabling operating systems to prioritize and manage tasks from multiple applications simultaneously. Two cores offer more physical resources to support multi-tasking and multithreaded environments, which is very important on high-performance computing platforms. In addition, AMD dual-core technology enables users to increase their computing capacity without increasing power requirements, providing the best performance-per-watt ratio in the industry.
PSSC Labs will have benchmark systems available for current customers. For
