Tomorrow's designs delivered today
The Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset is AMD's first server platform combining the CPU and chipset that gives system designers Hyper Transport™ 3.0 technology, PCI Express® 2.0 and new AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) technology features such as IO-virtualization and bridges Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset platform designs with AMD's future platforms*.
- Fast-track your designs: As an integrated server platform, the Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset enables the CPU, chipset, reference designs and technical information that can help you get to market faster and deliver server computing products with technology features on the leading edge
- Multiply your bandwidth: Part of the AMD Direct Connect Architecture, the Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset delivers HyperTransport™ 3.0 technology speed between the processor and I/O, up to 4.8 GT/s, with support for PCI Express® 2.0 that can double the I/O bandwidth** compared to previous AMD Opteron™ processor chipset designs
- Virtualize I/O more efficiently: The Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset includes I/O virtualization technology that isolates and separates virtual machines, enabling increased I/O performance through the support of direct device assignment. Improved address translation can reduce hypervisor intervention and increased security and efficiency throughout
- Connect with tomorrow: The Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset supports today's Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ (codename "Shanghai") and Six-Core AMD Opteron (codename "Istanbul") processors and prepares you with a proven chipset solution for G34 and C32 socket platforms designs of tomorrow*
*The Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor with AMD chipset platform uses AMD SR56x0 and SP5100 chipsets compatible with Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ (formerly codenamed 'Shanghai') and Six-Core AMD Opteron™ (formerly codenamed 'Istanbul') processors. Future platforms are expected to leverage chipsets SR56x0 and SP5100 but will use a different processor socket design
