AMD Strengthens Opteron 4300 Series and 3300 Series

AMD (News - Alert), a semiconductor design innovator, recently unveiled the new AMD Opteron 4300 Series and 3300 Series server processors. Maximizing the compute capabilities in power-constrained environments, the new processors boost performance per watt versus the previous generation.

The AMD Opteron 4300 Series processors are designed to lower datacenter TCO through unparalleled energy efficiency at an excellent value. Ideal for power-conscious cloud deployments, the AMD Opteron 4300 Series processor has been streamlined to run applications faster than ever at the lowest possible energy draw.

Moreover, AMD Opteron 3300 Series processor is designed for entry level, enterprise-class servers at desktop pricing – a single socket, money-in-pocket server solution.

This latest model in the AMD Opteron 3000 Series Processor (News - Alert) family provides a 13-percent increase in performance over the previous generation, and uses the latest generation of AMD’s modular core architecture to help increase TCO savings with outstanding performance per watt.

"The Piledriver core architecture shared by the AMD Opteron 4300 and 3300 Series processors provides optimized performance, power and price for today's customer," said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, general manager, Server Business Unit, AMD. "These new processors are ideal for cloud providers, Web hosts and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) who want to address their space and power constraints. With a simple upgrade, existing customers can obtain more performance and improved energy efficiency and new customers will obtain compelling value and ROI."

"AMD Opteron processor solutions have provided excellent investment return for our customers," said Brian Payne, executive director of Server Solutions, Dell (News - Alert). "The new 4300 and 3300 Series processors in the AMD-based Dell PowerEdge servers maintain this history and are ideal for Web service providers who strive to maximize revenue from their server infrastructure and also for [SMBs] who carefully invest to enable growth."

Meanwhile, AMD also announced the availability of the AMD APP SDK 2.8 and the AMD CodeXL unified tool suite to provide developers the tools and resources needed to accelerate applications with AMD accelerated processing units (APU) and graphics processing units (GPU). The APP SDK 2.8 and CodeXL tool suite provides access to code samples, white papers, libraries and tools to leverage the processing power of heterogeneous compute with OpenCL(TM), C++, DirectCompute and more.
