With AMD’s Opteron 6300 series processors, you can meet or exceed the computing power you need for a lower cost. With high core and clock counts and low wattage power draws, AMD Opteron processors offer a competitive edge when it comes to cost for performance. Additionally, four processor based servers do not cost a premium as they use the same CPUs as dual processor based systems.
Based on AMD tests the 6300 series, when compared to last generations 6200 series processors, offer up to a 37% performance uplift and support 1866MHz of DDR3 RAM and PCI-e 2.0. Plus, many of Aspen Systems' AMD configurations support up to four processors on one board equaling up to a possible count of 64 cores, and these can easily get to 1TB of memory. For high core count CPUs and high memory count for a lower price, consider going with an AMD solution.
