If you're in the market of building a new server, folding farm, or other system in which you wish to stuff many cores, the new Opteron 6300 series of processors could be the ones you're looking for. AMD has officially launched the new series of Opteron server processors, which feature the updated Piledriver cores.




AMD is saying that performance of these new chips is up to 24 percent better than that of the Opteron 6200 processors, which are based upon the older Bulldozer architecture. Piledriver cores are an updated version of Bulldozer that look to lower power consumption, while increasing performance.


The new chips feature varying core counts, from lowly quad-cores all the way up to 16-core monsters. Clock speeds range from 1.8Ghz all the way to 3.5GHz. With Turbo Core, the max frequency of some parts will boost all the way to 3.8GHz. The majority of the parts are in the 115W TDP category with the 6386 S being a 140W part.
