Six-Core Opteron HE Processor
Available for 2-, 4- and 8-P systems, the 55W ACP six-core Opteron HE Processor offers up to 18 percent lower platform-level power consumption over the standard wattage version and 18 percent better performance-per-watt than the quad-core version. It uses the same power/thermal ranges as the quad-core processors but with six cores per socket and increased bandwidth for database, e-mail and application serving. HyperTransport Assist reduces cache probe traffic between processors, resulting in faster queries. Built-in power management features and virtualization support also are included.
