AMD debuts Opteron 6300 series processors

US chip maker AMD has announced the immediate availability of its new Opteron 6300 series of server processors, codenamed “Warsaw”. The new chip line comes with the AMD Piledriver architecture inside and is fully compatible with existing Opteron 6300 processors. An interesting feature is that the new chips feature 12 or 16 processing cores depending on the model.

Currently there are two new models available – the AMD Opteron 6338P comes with 12 cores at 2.3 GHz (2.8 GHz in Turbo Mode, 99W TDP, quad-channeled DDR3 memory access), while the Opteron 6370P has 16 cores that operate at 2.0 GHz (2.5 GHz in Turbo mode, 99W TDP, quad-channeled DDR3 memory). Both chips are ideal for simulating heavily virtualized workloads in enterprise environments and fully meet the requirements of the AMD Open 3.0 Open Compute Platform.

The new Opteron processors can be immediately purchased – the Opteron 6338P costs USD 377 while the Opteron 6370P sells for USD 598.
