AMD Opteron 4300 Series embedded processors target telecom, networks
Three new Opteron 4300 Series embedded processors from AMD deliver an estimated 10 -15 percent performance improvement by leveraging the new Piledriver core at similar power bands, resulting in improved performance per-watt.
The AMD Opteron 4300 Series embedded processor series has models that run at a TDP of 35W and 65W at ambient temperatures up to 55oC, designed for telecom customers who need to meet the stringent NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) environmental stress tests.
For network systems that require high memory bandwidth the AMD Opteron 4300 Series embedded processor supports DDR3-1600 with a theoretical peak of 26 GB/s bandwidth. For securing transactions and speeding encryption, AMD has added AES encryption acceleration to help streamline the security authentication processing.
The Opteron 4300 Series is also tailored for storage applications that require high performance network connectivity and disk throughput. AMD Opteron embedded processor-based platforms offer I/O connectivity to PCIe Gen 2 interfaces such as 10 gigabit Ethernet, Infiniband, FCoE, and SAS.
The three new AMD Opteron embedded SKUs:
Opteron 4386, 8-core, 95W, 3.1GHz – 3.8GHz boost
Opteron 43GK HE, 8-core, 65W, 2.6GHz – 3.6GHz boost
Opteron 43CX EE, 4-core, 35W, 2.2GHz – 3.0GHz boost
