AMD shipping 8- and 12-core 'Magny-Cours' Opterons

AMD logoAdvanced Micro Devices (AMD) can check one box on its 2010 'To Do' list as, just as planned, it has begun delivering OEMs the new Opteron 6100 series processors (codename Magny-Cours).

"Production [of Magny-Cours chips] began last month and our OEM partners have been receiving production parts this month," said John Fruehe is the Director of Product Marketing for Server/Workstation products at AMD.

Manufactured on 45nm technology, the 8-core and 12-core server CPUs make use of the new G34 socket (1974 pins), feature four HyperTransport (3.0) links, a 4 channel integrated DDR3 memory controller, and up to 12MB of L3 cache.
