Are you still wondering what AMD plans to do when it comes to its server strategy? Well, the waiting is over and AMD has pulled the curtains off the vaguest decisions of its history. AMD today has revealed everything by disclosing its roadmap. Reason behind this wise or unwise move is to target those shareholders and pundits who have under-estimated and doubted AMD’s ability to recapture the market share in the enterprise and data centre markets. Probably AMD wants to prove by planning out various innovative products which meet the fast growing data centers and computing overloads that it’s not less than anyone.
AMD might not be able to keep up the pace when it comes to Intel’s CPU power consumption. So it decided to change its pathway to Opteron X series featuring X2150 quad-core APU and X1150 quad core CPU. These devices have the potential to perform better when compared to Intel’s Atom offering. These are the most power proficient small core processors ever built. Especially the new X2150 and X1150 wipe the floor of defeating the top achieving Intel Atom processor on throughout remarkable performance with power efficiency with twice amount of cores and L2 cache, improved pipeline architecture and support for up to 32 GB of DRAM which is four times more than Intel Atom processor.
