AMD is proud to offer the new AMD Opteron 4200 Series processor as the world’s lowest power-per-core server processor built to deliver unparalleled efficiency for complex, technical workloads.

Designed for power-conscious cloud deployments and ideal for IT infrastructure and collaboration, the AMD Opteron 4200 Series processor was developed from the ground up to handle demanding server workloads at the lowest possible energy draw. 

  • newegg New Core Architecture A 33% increase in core count packs in plenty of processing performance into a smaller, more efficient, 8-core design while maintaining very aggressive power/thermal ranges. New Core Architecture, including full performance from each core, high frequency and low-power design, virtualization enhancements, shared double-sized Flex FP and ISA enhancements, delivers optimized performance per watt.
  • newegg AMD Turbo CORE Technology AMD Turbo CORE technology takes advantage of additional power headroom to digitally boost all cores simultaneously by up to 300MHz and can boost up to 1GHz when only half of the cores are active, allowing applications to finish tasks quickly and return to lower power states.
  • newegg AMD-P 2.0 The AMD-P suite of energy-efficient technologies helps customers maximize the performance per watt in their datacenter and can help lower power and cooling costs. TDP Power Cap allows user to set the maximum processor power ceiling via BIOS or APML to meet power and workload demands. C6 Power State reduces processor power consumption at active idle by up to 37% while AMD CoolSpeed Technology protects processor integrity by reducing power-states, when a temperature limit is reached. Other features include C1E, LV-DDR3 support and APML (Advanced Platform Management Link) which provides an interface for processor and systems management monitoring and controlling of system resources (in APML-enabled platforms).
  • newegg HyperTransport 3.0 Technology with HT Assist 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. HT 3.0 technology offers the processor up to a maximum 6.4GT/s interconnect rate. HT Assist helps to increase coherent memory bandwidth and reduce latency in multi-node systems by reducing cache probe traffic between cores, resulting in faster queries that can increase performance for cache sensitive applications such as database, virtualization, and compute intensive applications.
  • newegg AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) 2.0 AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) is a set of unique on-chip features that help AMD processor-based servers and clients run multiple operating systems and applications on a single machine by improving the efficiency of virtualization software. Virtualized infrastructure deployments can enjoy 33% more VMs in the same power and thermal ranges thanks to the new AMD-V virtualization features, allowing small/medium businesses to grow with their business needs on a single virtualized platform.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price, DAW performance and pizzazz!

Pros: It may be a little early to write a review about my entire system, but I had to write concerning these chips. Wow!!! I used AMD in previous builds and was always impressed, but for a couple of years now I had to overlook AMD because of various none-CPU related constraints. Am I glad that is over!!! These CPUs roar when called upon (then immediately back off), they are ridiculously cheap(!) compared to "comparable" Intel CPUs (which actually aren't comparable because of the way Intel fudges their rating), and because of Valencia's features (like HT Assist) which are not "window"-dressing ... as I use the system, I'm observing their operation in real time.

Cons: They run hot when they rev up, but then rapidly cool. As AMD notes, the effect averages out to more umph with less power consumption. They don't come with heat sinks, which figures as one will want more cooling than a stock solution could offer. Newegg didn't have a choice of heat sinks, however (another con); so to expedite matters I went with the Noctua solution, which are bulky heat sinks and come with only three pin fans. But despite this, these Opteron 4284's run like champs. (I get less audio latency out of my soundcard with this system than I ever have, which from experience can't be due to the more powerful system but the I think comes about because of the HyperTransport Technology 3.0.)

Other Thoughts: I use the system for a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). While rendering, the machine runs at approx. 80% CPU capacity and utilizes ~12 MBs of RAM for usually 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Case temps run about 39C (100F), but fall to 31C (87F) ambient within 10 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat workstation chip

Pros: Great workstation chip, 8 cores, 8 MB cache, good pricing!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For those looking for a C32 CPU cooler... don't. C32 takes the same coolers as the older socket F. 3.5" bolt spacing, they are identical. Most C32 motherboards also come with brackets that allow all AM2/AM3 coolers to work too. So stop searching for a C32 cooler, there are none that are specific to this socket! FYI I'm using a Dynatron F558 cooler on this chip, with a Supermicro H8SCM motherboard. FYI that mobo requires a BIOS update to use these new 4200 series CPU's.

5 out of 5 eggsSocket C32 not G32

Pros: None of the 4100 series server cpus are listed because newegg has messed up the socket. GET IT RIGHT!

Cons: blah
