    Overview


    AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series Processors


    AMD proudly presents the new AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series—the world’s first and only 16-core x86 server processor with the highest core density for incredible scalability to handle demanding multi-threaded workloads such as cloud computing, virtualization, high-performance computing (HPC), databases and business applications.
    The innovative modular architecture helps pack in more cores, making it the natural choice for heavy-threaded cloud computing environments and enterprise applications that demand outstanding performance and scalability.

    Performance


    FEATUREFUNCTION END-USER BENEFIT
    New Core ArchitectureOptimized performance per watt:
    • Full performance from each core
    • High frequency and low-power design
    • Virtualization enhancements
    • Shared double-sized Flex FP
    • ISA enhancements
    The new processor core can enhance power efficiency for server products:
    • Help minimize cooling solution complexities
    • Help reduce power at low utilization
    • Enable more control for IT managers
    AMD Turbo CORE TechnologyTurns unused TDP headroom into added clock speed for improved performanceThe industry’s best full-core boost1 with up to a 500MHz frequency increase2
    ISA EnhancementsIn addition to baseline instruction support, added SSE4.1, SSE4.2, SSSE3, AVX, AES, PCLMULQDQ, FMA4 and XOPProvides performance enhancements to a wide range of applications
    Flex FPThe world’s only flexible 256-bit FPU. Two 128-bit FMACs shared per module, allowing for dedicated 128-bit execution per core or shared 256-bit execution per module.Enhances flexibility and performance in technical computing


    AMD-P 2.0


    FEATUREFUNCTION END-USER BENEFIT
    APML (Advanced Platform Management Link)Provides an interface for processor and systems management monitoring and controlling of system resources (in APML-enabled platforms); Comprised of the Remote Power Management Interface (RPMI) and the Precision Thermal MonitorRemote Power Management Interface (RPMI):
    • Ability to monitor and control platform power consumption via p-state limits
    • Access to processor identification and health

    Precision Thermal Monitor:
    • Provides accurate information about CPU thermals to closely monitor power/cooling and proactively alert the Base Management Controller (BMC)
    • Early notification helps save time and money by providing intelligence that can be used to more effectively monitor power and thermals to optimize cooling solutions in an IT datacenter
    TDP Power CapAllows the user to set the maximum processor power ceiling via BIOS or APMLThis technology gives enterprises the ability to customize their chips to meet power and workload demands, providing:
    • More control over power settings
    • Flexibility to set power limits without capping CPU frequencies
    AMD CoolSpeed TechnologyProtects processor integrity by reducing power-states, when a temperature limit is reached
    • Server can automatically drop into lower power mode if processor’s thermal environment exceeds safe operational limits
    • Offers platform providers the ability to safely reduce system fan speeds, which helps deliver greater platform efficiency
    C1EReduces memory controller and HyperTransport™ technology links’ powerThis feature can equate to a significant power savings in your datacenter depending on system configuration, when the Northbridge and HyperTransport™ technology links are powered down and cores are at idle.
    C6 SupportCore power gating: When a core is halted its context is exported to system memory and voltage is removed from the core.Helps reduce power consumption at idle by up to 46% over the previous generation3
    LV-DDR3 SupportSupports 1.25V and 1.35V DDR3Helps to reduce overall power consumption
    Higher DDR3 FrequenciesDDR3-1600 now supported for typical memory configurations; DDR3-1866 supported in slightly loaded memory configurations (1 of 1 DIMM per channel)Helps to improve overall system performance
    LR-DIMM SupportSupport for LR-DIMM memoryLR-DIMMs provide more capacity per DIMM, which can enable higher overall server memory configurations. Virtualization, cloud computing and other high-capacity applications greatly benefit from LR-DIMMs.


    Direct Connect Architecture 2.0


    FEATUREFUNCTION END-USER BENEFIT
    Quad Channel MemoryDoubles the memory channels compared to Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processorsCan increase performance especially in memory-intensive workloads
    HyperTransport™ Technology Assist (HT Assist)Helps to increase coherent memory bandwidth and reduce latency in multi-node systems by reducing cache probe traffic between coresCan result in faster queries that can increase performance for cache sensitive applications such as database, virtualization and compute intensive applications
    HyperTransport™ 3.0 Technology (HT3)Provides superior system bandwidth between CPUs and I/O, increasing interconnect rate up to a maximum 6.4GT/s with HT3Helps improve overall system balance and scalability for scale-out computing environments like HPC, database and web serving
    Cache and Core CountIntegration of up to 16 cores within the same package, 1MB L2 cache per core (up to 16MB of L2 cache per socket), and a shared 16MB L3 cache per socketOffers improved performance and performance/watt (compared to prior generations) for multi-threaded environments like virtualization, database and web serving
