Get the performance you need at the price you want for today's demanding workloads. The AMD Opteron 4386 Seoul processor has 8 cores and supports U/RDDR3 up to DDR3-1866 and ULV (1.25V) RDDR3 up to DDR3-1333. It can be used in two-way configuration - to achieve up to 16 compute cores in a single system - great for servers and high-performance computing, especially with software that's built to run in parallel. Based on the second generation of AMD's modular core architecture codenamed "Piledriver", the Opteron 4386 delivers significantly higher performance per watt per dollar than previous generation processors.
Run your IT infrastructure, web, cloud and collaboration workloads on a platform built on an ideal balance of enterprise-proven performance and smart business.

Innovative “Piledriver” core architecture
Provides the right balance of price-performance per watt by sharing resources–such as fetch and decode logic–to help reduce power and die size, and increase execution units for improved performance. This redesigned architecture optimizes execution paths that help reduce the total power consumption by actually optimizing the way software runs.
New power management and power saving capabilities
New power management capabilities allow for larger parts of the processor to be almost completely powered off when not being used, dramatically reducing idle core power consumption and enabling active cores to run at a higher frequency.
New power saving features like TDP-based power capping put the customer in control of more aspects of power efficiency than ever before on AMD Opteron processor-based embedded platforms.
Consistent platform with Socket C32 and the AMD SR56x0/ SP5100 chipset offers a platform compatibility with existing AMD Opteron 4200 Series processor-based systems.
Reliability is a key factor in selecting server system components. Select SKUs of AMD Opteron processors are NEBS (Network Equipment Building System)-friendly–either with higher Tcase support or p-state control during extreme temperature conditions–supporting telecommunications industry requirements for reliability.
The AMD Opteron 4300 Series processor provides multi-processing scalability options from one to two socket systems. This, combined with the reliability of AMD64 technology, helps enable an embedded design that may provide customers a long range plan for the life cycle of their systems.
