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.
AMD’s Direct Connect Architecture 2.0 continues to deliver a balanced approach to raw processing power, memory performance, I/O throughput, power efficienc, and scalability. The AMD Opteron 4100 Series processor is fully software and virtualization compatible with previous generation AMD Opteron processors and adds new features to innovations like AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-VTM) technology, which can help customers maximize embedded system efficienc, security and provide new innovative embedded system architectures. Performance enhancements like HT Assist technology help improve inter-processor communications via more efficient probes for improve multi-processor performance. And Direct Connect Architecture 2.0 enables several new power conservation features.
