AMD Introduces Server Processors for Cloud and Hyperscale Data Centers.

Advanced Micro Devices this week introduced its new AMD Opteron 4100-series microprocessors that target cloud and hyperscale data centers. The new chips come at very low cost and are supported by AMD’s new cost-efficient server platform code-named San Marino and low-power platform called Adelaide. AMD claims that select new central processing units (CPUs) offer the lowest “per-core” power consumption in the server industry.

“Until now, customers wanting to build a dense and power-efficient cloud or hyperscale data center had to shoehorn expensive, higher-end solutions into their computing environment, or they had to choose low-power client-based designs that may not have offered the right level of performance and server functionality. With the AMD Opteron 4000-series platform, these customers now have a server platform that is extremely power- and cost-efficient, allows a high degree of customization,” said Patrick Patla, corporate vice president and general manager of server and embedded division at AMD.
