AMD launched on Wednesday a new family of low power server processors: the AMD Opteron™ X-Series optimized for scale-out server architectures.
The AMD Opteron X-Series processors come in two variants. The AMD Opteron X2150, which consumes as little as 11 watts, is the first server APU system-on-a-chip integrating CPU and GPU engines with a high-speed bus on a single die. This enables customers to take advantage of leading-edge AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 graphics technology for multimedia-oriented server workloads. The AMD Opteron X1150, which consumes as little as 9 watts, is a CPU-only version optimized for general scale-out workloads.
The AMD Opteron X2150 APU and X1150 CPU will be available for a cost of $99 and $64, respectively, in 1K quantities.
