The AMD Opteron™ Processor helped establish AMD as a key processor designer in the embedded industry. It provided high-performance, low-power processing for markets including networking and communications, server, and storage.
When demanding workloads push the limits of your data center, push back with AMD Opteron 6300 series processors built to deliver the performance you need at the price you want.
- Low acquisition costs that help reduce overall TCO
Scalable architecture ideal for cloud deployments
- Second generation of AMD's modular core architecture – codenamed "Piledriver"
- Cache and Core Count
- Up to 16 cores within the same package, 1MB of L2 cache per core (with up to 16MB of L2 cache per socket), and shared 16MB of L3 cache per socket.
- Helps improves performance and performance/watt for multi-threaded environments like virtualization, database and web serving.
- Higher DDR3 Frequencies
- Supports DDR3-1600 for typical memory configurations and DDR3-1866 for slightly loaded memory configurations.
- Helps improve system performance.
- Quad Channel Memory
- Four DDR3 memory channels with max memory bandwidth of up to 51.2 GB/s @ DDR3-1600 with RDIMM, LRDIMM, LV RDIMM and UDIMM.
- Can increase performance, especially in memory-intensive workloads.
- AMD Turbo CORE Technology
- Cores can boost performance by up to 300MHz simultaneously when headroom is available.
- Adds clock speed for improved performance.
- AES Instructions
- Provides hardware acceleration for fast and secure data encryption and decryption.
- Helps improve application performance.
- TDP Power Cap
- Thermal design power (TDP) can be set in one watt increments using the BIOS or APML to get the most processing power into a single rack.
- Offers more control over power settings and the flexibility to set power limits without capping CPU frequencies.
- C6 Power State
- Core power gating reduces and increases voltage as needed.
- Helps reduce power costs during times of low usage.
