Beef up your first generation Opteron server with a new 2xx series processor. Running at 2.8GHz with 1MB of L2 cache per core this simple upgrade will breathe new life into your network. HyperTransport technology provides up to 24.0GB/s peak bandwidth per processor.
Based on the AMD64 architecture it is designed to run today's 32bit x86 software and operating systems at maximum performance and efficiency while providing a 64bit upgrade path. You also get AMD's Direct Connect Architecture (DCA) which connects the processors, integrated memory controller and I/O directly to the CPU at full speed.
AMD64 Dual-core Technology AMD64 is designed to enable simultaneous 32 and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With dual-core technology there are two complete processor cores in one physical package running at the same frequency to deliver TRUE multi-tasking power, allowing users to switch from one program to another without pausing for the computer to catch up and reducing annoying processing pauses.
HyperTransport Technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. With HT technology the AMD Opteron 290 Dual-core processor enjoys 1000MHz system bus speeds.
Enhanced Virus Protection All AMD processors equipped with AMD64 technology are Enhanced Virus Protection-enabled. Enhanced virus protection acts as a preventative measure causing viruses to be localized, short-lived, and non-contagious, eventually being flushed from system memory.
CNQ: Cool'n'Quiet Technology AMD's Cool'n'Quiet technology is an innovative solution available on AMD Athlon 64 processor-based systems that can effectively lower power consumption and enable a quieter-running system while delivering performance-on-demand.
