The AMD Opteron™ 4100 Series processor is the industry’s lowest power 1P and 2P 6-core embedded processor1 that addresses the demanding needs of embedded enterprise markets including telecommunications, storage, network and security appliances. These applications require the right balance of performance per watt– and the AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor is designed to meet the need.
Data communication systems require performance in a small form factor environment and the AMD Opteron 4100 EE power band delivers 6 cores of performance at only 40W TDP –with elevated case temperature. This capability provides up to 88% improvement in performance per watt over the previous generation embedded AMD processors in the EE power band.2
Network systems require high memory bandwidth and the AMD Opteron 4100 series processor supports DDR3-1333 with a peak of 21GB/s bandwidth. This is a 66% improvement in memory bandwidth over the previous embedded AMD Processor implementations.3
Storage appliances require high performance network connectivity and disk throughput and the AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor has two 16-bit lanes of HyperTransport™ 3.0 Technology links for 25GB/s peak bandwidth per link between processors and I/O. This is a 33% improvement in I/O bandwidth over the previous embedded AMD processor implementations.4
Embedded systems can also benefit from multiple AMD 5600 Series chipsets for tremendous I/O connectivity to PCIe® Gen 2 interfaces such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Infiniband, FCoE. This data throughput can meet the I/O performance required by today’s systems, as well as tomorrow’s system demands.
All embedded enterprise systems can benefit from AMD Opteron 4100 Processors’ performance at a low power and scalability without compromise and a platform upgrade path with the planned next-generation “Bulldozer” processor.
- Industry’s first 6-core embedded enterprise processor that provides 2P scalability at only 40W at a worst case TDP - Provides up to 25.6GB/s per link in HT 3.0 generation, and is compatible with HT 1.0 generation implementations - Optimizes memory bandwidth to help improve system performance - Helps reduce power and cooling costs by lowering the energy consumption of the platform design
