|Providing a balanced approach to embedded system design|
The AMD Opteron™ processor helps enable a breakthrough in high-performance, low power processing for edge-of-enterprise markets including storage and telecommunications, as well as more traditional embedded markets such as security and medical imaging, military systems, and single-board computing. AMD64 technology with Direct Connect Architecture helps provide a balanced foundation for embedded systems. Based on the industry-standard x86 platform, AMD64 delivers the right match of processing power, memory performance, I/O throughput, and scalability. Add the vision of 32- and 64-bit application support with native multi-core computing in a consistent thermal envelope and many embedded designers are finding their AMD Opteron™ processor-based next-generation systems deliver superior application performance.
- HyperTransport™ technology provides up to 17.6GB/s per link in HT 3.0 generation, and is compatible with HT 1.0 generation implementation
- On-die integrated DDR2 memory controller offers available memory bandwidth up to 12.8GB/s (with DDR2-800) per processor
- Hardware assisted AMD Virtualization™ technology in AMD Opteron processors with DDR2 helps streamline the efficiency of multiple servers and provides virtual machine memory isolation for improved security
- Socket F (1207) provides system upgrade option from dualcore to quad-core in the same physical foorprint with future upgrade to six-core when they become available
