AMD Opteron 4200 lineup revealed
In September AMD began shipments of next generation server processors with Interlagos core, based on Bulldozer micro-architecture. The CPUs, branded as Opteron 6200, will feature up to 16 cores, support quad-CPU configurations, and will be launched this quarter. Also in the 4th quarter, AMD is going to introduce Opteron 4200 "Valencia" chips, which are less expensive server parts for dual-processor systems. Up to this moment there was no any information on specific Opteron 4200 models. Today we were able to locate details on 8 upcoming Valencia microprocessors.
Like Opteron 4100 family, 4200 family is a mix of standard-, mid- and low-power microprocessors. The only known at this time low-power "Valencia" model is Opteron 4256 EE. This eight-core part runs at 2.5 GHz, and has 32 Watt Average CPU Power, which, we believe, corresponds to 35W TDP.
Two mid-power Opterons are six-core 4228 HE and eight-core 4274 HE. These processors come with 2.8 GHz and 2.5 GHz clock speeds, and they both boast 50W ACP (65W TDP).
All remaining models have 75 Watt ACP, or 95 Watt TDP. Opteron 4226, 4234 and 4238 have 6 CPU cores, and operate at 2.7 GHz, 3.1 GHz and 3.3 GHz. Opteron 4280 and 4284 have 8 cores, although their clock frequencies are lower, only 2.8 GHz and 3 GHz.
Known specifications of Opteron 4200 microprocessors are listed below. Please note that we included ACP, or Average CPU Power, which is lower than Thermal Design Power:
