The innovative and progressive AMD Opteron 146 Socket 939 processor provides a highly scalable architecture that delivers next-generation performance as well as a flexible upgrade path from 32- to 64-bit computing for any workstation and high-end desktop platform and is a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). For gaming purposes, it is adaptable to both overclocking and voltage jumps, and remains stable at stressful levels. It offers an excellent value for the price.
This advanced processor operates at 2.0GHz with 1MB L2 Cache for significantly enhanced overall system performance and incredible efficiency in complex computing environments such as CAD, graphics and scientific workstation platforms or high-end gaming desktop systems. With a single architecture designed to meet current and future business needs, the AMD Opteron processor can help to minimize the integration complexities presented by business environments today and in the future.
- AMD64 TechnologyAMD64 technology is designed to enable simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With Direct Connect Architecture, AMD64 processors address and help eliminate the real challenges and bottlenecks of system architectures because everything is directly connected to the central processing unit.
- Integrated DDR DRAM Memory ControllerThe AMD Opteron 146 Socket 939 processor is integrated with a DDR DRAM memory controller capable of supporting 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. Usage of DDR400/PC3200 memory will provide the processor with up to 6.4GB/s memory bandwidth.
- HyperTransport TechnologyHyperTransport 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 146 processor enjoys 1000MHz system bus speeds.
- Enhanced Virus ProtectionAll 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.
