Comment On This Article

AMD today has announced its first quad-core processor in the Opteron workstation series. AMD's first quad-core component has been for a while now as Barcelona , but officially it belongs to AMD's Opteron 2300 series. Accompanying their quad-core announcement is a new metric for determining power usage known as Average CPU Power (ACP). Accompanying the Opteron 2300 series are also new power-saving technologies such as AMD CoolCore Technology, Independent Dynamic Core Technology, and Dual Dynamic Power Management. Last but certainly not least, the Barcelona offers improved virtualization performance. In the near future at Phoronix we hope to be delivering Opteron 2300 benchmarks for Linux and Solaris. You can also find Linux benchmarks from Intel's first quad-core processor (known as Clovertown) in our Intel Xeon 5300 Series Preview. Find out more on this new AMD processor series in the AMD press release.
