AMD Opteron-based APU ready to micro-servers Jaguar

AMD Opteron-based APU ready to micro-servers Jaguar

The launch of the soc Intel Atom for Server S1200 Series for micro-servers, took completely off guard, which is rumored enlists a desperate response with the soon to octo core Opteron low-power micro-servers . But AMD also enlists new products specifically developed for the market for micro-servers.

The Bright Side of News interviewed Andrew Feldman, head of the Data Center Service Division of AMD and former CEO of SeaMicro, which revealed that AMD is committed to the market for micro-servers, and for the last half of 2013 (from July to December) launched its mini-micro-core x86 servers, but refused to reveal any details about them.

Although Andrew Feldman has refused to give details of these future SoC Opteron, it’s easy to deduce that this will be an SoC based on its micro-architecture power Jaguar , the same that will be used in the SoC Temash, which we know will be released between the first six months of 2013 (January to June).

micro-architecture offers improvements over Bobcat trails, many of them very interesting for the market for micro-servers, including the memory controller have 40-bit (support up to 1TB of DRAM), native quad-core design , and its rich instruction set (SSE 4.1, SSE 4.2, AES (encryption), CLMUL, MOVBE, AVX 1.0, xSave / XSAVEOPT, F16C and BMI).

AMD also enlists their future CPUs and APUs based on ARM Cortex-A57 (ARM 64-bit), but confirms that these products do not arrive until early 2014.
