High Performance Computing (HPC)

Benefits of AMD Opteron for HPC

  • Substantial performance improvements across a range of memory and compute intensive HPC workloads in the same power envelop as the previous generation
  • 8 or 12 physical cores provide higher compute density and increased system floating point performance
  • Provides outstanding performance per watt for dense, scale out environments
  • Support for four memory channels providing large DDR3 memory capacity and higher memory bandwidth for memory intensive workloads
  • HT Assist provides superior scalability, lowers latency, and improves overall memory bandwidth performance
  • Ubiquitous PCI-E® Gen 2 for high speed interconnects (QDR InfiniBand™/10GBe) & accelerator expansion (GPUs)
  • Well balanced architecture for Memory, FLOPs, and Network intensive HPC workloads
  • Seamless same-socket upgrade path to next generation AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processors
