The Opteron 2300 series builds upon previous generations, taking advantage of new technologies. The Opteron 2378 is a Quad-core processor that can be scaled up to 2-processors and 8-cores for unbeatable performance. The four cores run at 2.4GHz each and have 4 x 512KB of L2 cache as well as 6MB of L3 cache.
More power generates more heat. More heat requires more energy for cooling and can shorten the lifespan of the system. AMD takes a multi-pronged approach: It takes advantage of DDR2 memory, which uses 30% less energy. The new PowerNow! Technology provides power on demand by adjusting performance based on need, and can reduce power at idle by 75%.
AMD Virtualization can put an end to the one server, one application problem common to many data centers. Consolidate servers by running multiple applications on a single box. The integrated memory controller keeps memory used in each virtual machine isolated. This saves you money since you need fewer systems to do the same work your capital outlay is less -- and so is your monthly power bill. The AMD Opteron 2378 works hard for your money!
AMD64 Quad-core Technology AMD64 is designed to enable simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With Quad-core technology, four complete processor cores on a single die run at the same frequency to deliver exceptional multi-tasking power, allowing users to surge through the most demanding processing loads, including advanced multitasking, critical business productivity, complicated visual design and modeling, serious gaming, and visually stunning digital media and entertainment.
Integrated DDR2 DRAM Memory Controller The AMD Opteron 2378 Quad-core processor is integrated with a DDR2 DRAM memory controller capable of supporting registered and ECC DRAM. The integrated memory controller changes the way the processor accesses main memory, resulting in increased bandwidth, reduced memory latencies, and enhanced processor performance.
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 2378 Quad-core processor enjoys 1000MHz system bus speeds.
AMD Virtualization Virtualization on desktop computers allows a single PC to act like multiple virtual machines. AMD Virtualization can enable client computers to seamlessly support multiple operating environments. And it also helps make it easier for PC enthusiasts to upgrade and maintain their PCs through emulation.
AMD CoolCore Technology AMD CoolCore Technology reduces processor energy consumption by turning off unused parts of the processor. Power can be switched on or off within a single clock cycle so that energy is saved without compromising performance.
