AMD: server platform promotes power efficiency

New AMD server platform announced

With the introduction of the Six-Core AMD Opteron processor with Chipset platform, AMD is taking a step in its strategy to provide customers with server platforms, it said. These address the requirements of datacenter workloads, the vendor added. The new server platform, along with the AMD platform specification, code-named 'Kroner', enables performance, provides the benefits of a unified processor and chipset technology, while furthering energy efficiency, the vendor claimed.

According to the company, the 'Kroner' twin server design specification offers platform elements such as voltage regulation and the ability to remotely set power caps, to help drive down power consumption for hyperscale customers. The platform also offers energy efficiency with a new low-power AMD chipset to meet demands of cloud and dense server environments, the company added.

Unified platforms can improve design efficiency, technology integration and enable enhanced platform features among CPUs, according to AMD. The vendor also said that additional OEMs are expected to incorporate the new AMD server chipset into their systems.

"Our focus is to deliver on the aspects of a server platform that impacts the IT manager, such as improved performance on workloads and virtualization and low power consumption," said Patrick Patla, VP and GM- Server and Embedded Business, AMD. "This new platform and 'Kroner' allow our OEM customers to deliver solutions to solve datacenter problems," he added.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
