Specifications of new embedded AMD Opteron CPUs
This week AMD introduced first 4200- and 6200-series server microprocessors, based on Bulldozer microarchitecture. All in all, the company released 18 models for dual- and quad-CPU system configurations. AMD also announced plans to launch Opteron 3000 series platform in the first half of 2012. In addition to that, this and next quarter there will be three new Opterons for embedded market, 42DX EE, 42MX HE, and 6230 HE.
Embedded Opteron 42DX EE and 42MX HE support dual-processor servers, and fit socket C32. Both CPUs operate at 2.2 GHz, and have 8 MB of last level cache. The chips support Turbo Core technology, which allows them to overclock active cores up to 3.3 GHz when necessary. Model 42DX EE has 4 CPU cores and 40 Watt Thermal Design Power. Opteron 42MX HE incorporates 8 cores, and fits into 65 Watt power envelope.
Opteron 6230 HE is a twelve-core CPU, compatible with socket G34, and clocked at 2.2 GHz. Turbo Core feature on this chip can boost core frequency up to 3.1 GHz. The 6230 HE has twice larger L3 cache, than 4200-series embedded Opterons, and higher 85 Watt TDP.
According to Embedded Product Selection Guide (PDF file), Opteron 6230 HE will be launched in the first quarter 2012, while 42DX EE and 42MX HE should be available this quarter. AMD will also offer server and embedded versions of Opteron 4280 and 6274 processors.
