AMD Shows Off Servers Running Twelve-Core Chips
[04/24/2009 11:22 PM]
by Anton Shilov

Advanced Micro Devices has demonstrated its twelve-core microprocessors operating in a 4-way server just days after it said it would start selling six-core chips in May, 2008. Thanks to multi-chip-module nature of the code-named Magny-Cours processor, creation of such chip was a relatively easy challenge.

AMD Opteron 6000-series code-named Magny-Cours with twelve processing engines will be released in the first quarter of 2010, according to some reports. However, already now AMD can demonstrate the chip to public and customers to show off its benefits compared to competing platforms and technologies.



This week AMD demonstrated a 4-way server featuring four Magny-Cours processors. While AMD did not demonstrate any real-world performance numbers, the system with 48 cores looked impressive by itself.

AMD Magny-Cours processor will be the first chip for the AMD G34 “Maranello” platform designed for Opteron processors 6000-series with up to 16 cores, quad-channel memory interface, 2 or 4 sockets, up to 12 memory modules per socket and some server and enterprise-specific functionality.

In 2011 AMD plans to release a successor for Magny-Cours code-named Interlagos, which will be based on Bulldozer micro-architecture, built using 32nm process technology and contain up to 16 cores.

Twelve cores? Sheesh. Seems like just yesterday we were drooling over dual cores. This should do wonders for the server world.

But it can transfer data at a much higher speed than a 16x dvd drive.... If reading from a bluray disc, only because of how the data is written... Remember cd drives started at really low numbers, and so did dvds.... give bluray sometime... It may hit 12x someday...

The multiplier thing can't be used to compare between different formats.

DVD 1x is 9 times faster than CD-ROM 1x
Blu-ray 1x is 45 times faster than CD-ROM 1x
