AMD Reveals New Processor for Enterprises in 2014
AMD has announced its strategy and roadmap of innovative products to recapture the market share in the enterprise and data center servers. In addition, AMD also revealed detail of its 2014 server portfolio, which includes best-in-class Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), two- and four-socket CPUs and its industry's premier ARM server processor.
The upcoming AMD Opteron processors will bring about important innovations to the rapidly changing compute market, including integrated CPU and GPU compute (APU); higher core-count ARM servers for high density compute in data centers; and substantial improvements in compute per-watt and reduction in total cost of ownership.
“Our strategy is to differentiate ourselves by using our unique IP to build server processors that are particularly well matched to a target workload and thereby drive down the total cost of owning servers. This strategy unfolds across both the enterprise and data centers and includes leveraging our graphics processing capabilities and embracing both x86 and ARM instruction sets...AMD led the world in the transition to multicore processors and 64-bit computing, and we intend to do it again with our next-generation AMD Opteron families,” said Andrew Feldman, General Manager of the Server Business Unit, AMD.
Among the products that are targeted to be available in 2014 includes, the 64-bit CPU, codenamed “Seattle”, which is expected to provide category-leading throughput as well as setting the bar in performance-per-watt. AMD's APU, code named “Berlin” is an x86 CPU and APU that is designed to offer extraordinary compute-per-watt that will enable massive rack density. Lastly, AMD's processor, codenamed “Warsaw” is the company's next-generation 2P/4P offering, which optimizes the heavily virtualized workloads found in enterprise environments, including the more complex compute needs of data analysis. “Warsaw” will provide significantly improved performance-per-watt over today's AMD Opteron 6300 family.
