AMD Opteron Kyoto CPUs to have 9-watt TDP


After working on power efficient Kabini APUs Advanced Micro Devices has prepared a new generation of Opteron chips that will have similar power efficiency. Codenamed Kyoto the new processors are expected this summer and will be best used in micro servers where they will compete with Intel’s Centerton S1200 CPUs.

The Kyoto CPU family will be the first Opteron generation to feature CPU cores and a GPU on the same processor die but there will be versions without an integrated GPU. Kyoto is very likely to be based on the AMD Kabini architecture and will offer as many as four cores. In case you opt for a CPU + GPU Kyoto combo expect to get an AMD Radeon HD 8000 series GPU.

Pricing right now is unknown.
