HP Introduces Workstation with Six-core AMD Opteron Processor

By DE Editors

HP has announced the integration of the Six-Core AMD Opteron 2400 Series processor into its family of HP Workstations.

The HP xw9400 Workstation taps the power of the new AMD Opteron processors to deliver higher productivity, especially for multi-threaded applications, multi-tasking, and mega-tasking environments.

The HP xw9400 Workstation can accommodate up to two Six-Core AMD Opteron processors—for a total of 12 cores—each of which offers up to 34 percent more performance per watt over the previous-generation quad-core processors, according to the company.

AMD HyperTransport 3.0 technology (HT3) increases interconnect rates from 2 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) up to a maximum 4.8 GT/s. Additionally, the HP xw9400 can be configured with the ATI FirePro V7750 3-D workstation graphics accelerator.
