 AMD Opteron™ 4200 Series Processors

AMD Opteron™ processor

Exceptional efficiencies for cloud computing

Ideal for power-conscious cloud deployments, AMD Opteron 4200 Series processors are built to handle demanding server workloads at the lowest possible energy draw.



New Core Architecture

Optimized performance per watt:

  • Full performance from each core
  • High frequency and low-power design
  • Virtualization enhancements
  • Shared double-sized Flex FP
  • ISA enhancements

The new processor core can enhance power efficiency for server products:

  • Help minimize cooling solution complexities
  • Help reduce power at low utilization
  • Enable more control for IT managers
AMD Turbo CORE TechnologyTurns unused TDP headroom into added clock speed for improved performanceThe industry's best full-core boost1 with up to a 500MHz frequency increase2
ISA EnhancementsIn addition to baseline instruction support, added SSE4.1, SSE4.2, SSSE3, AVX, AES, PCLMULQDQ, FMA4 and XOPProvides performance enhancements to a wide range of applications
Flex FPThe world's only flexible 256-bit FPU. Two 128-bit FMACs shared per module, allowing for dedicated 128-bit execution per core or shared 256-bit execution per module.Enhances flexibility and performance in technical computing

AMD-P 2.0

APML (Advanced Platform Management Link)Provides an interface for processor and systems management monitoring and controlling of system resources (in APML-enabled platforms); Comprised of the Remote Power Management Interface (RPMI) and the Precision Thermal Monitor

Remote Power Management Interface (RPMI):

  • Ability to monitor and control platform power consumption via p-state limits
  • Access to processor identification and health

Precision Thermal Monitor:

  • Provides accurate information about CPU thermals to closely monitor power/cooling and proactively alert the Base Management Controller (BMC)
  • Early notification helps save time and money by providing intelligence that can be used to more effectively monitor power and thermals to optimize cooling solutions in an IT data center 
TDP Power CapAllows the user to set the maximum processor power ceiling via BIOS or APML

This technology gives enterprises the ability to customize their chips to meet power and workload demands, providing:

  • More control over power settings
  • Flexibility to set power limits without capping CPU frequencies
AMD CoolSpeed Technology Protects processor integrity by reducing power-states, when a temperature limit is reached
  • Server can automatically drop into lower power mode if processor's thermal environment exceeds safe operational limits
  • Offers platform providers the ability to safely reduce system fan speeds, which helps deliver greater platform efficiency
C1E Reduces memory controller and HyperTransport™ technology links' powerThis feature can equate to a significant power savings in your data center depending on system configuration, when the Northbridge and HyperTransport™ technology links are powered down and cores are at idle.
C6 SupportCore power gating: When a core is halted its context is exported to system memory and voltage is removed from the core.Helps reduce power consumption at idle by up to 46% over the previous generation3
LV-DDR3 SupportSupports 1.25V and 1.35V DDR3Helps to reduce overall power consumption 
Higher DDR3 FrequenciesDDR3-1600 now supported for typical memory configurations; DDR3-1866 supported in slightly loaded memory configurations (1 of 1 DIMM per channel)Helps to improve overall system performance
Ultra-low Power PlatformSpecialized ultra-low power platforms great for cloud/dense environmentsCooperative designs for specialized and ultra-low power platform providing power efficiency beyond just the processor

Direct Connect Architecture 2.0

HyperTransport™ Technology Assist (HT Assist)Helps to increase coherent memory bandwidth and reduce latency in multi-node systems by reducing cache probe traffic between cores Reduces the amount of cache prode bus traffic enhancing a server's efficiency and scalability
HyperTransport™ 3.0 Technology (HT3) Provides superior system bandwidth between CPUs and I/O, increasing interconnect rate up to a maximum 6.4GT/s with HT3Helps improve overall system balance and scalability
Cache and Core CountIntegration of up to 8 cores within the same package, 1MB L2 cache per core (up to 8MB of L2 cache per socket), and a shared 8MB L3 cache per socketOffers improved performance and performance/watt (compared to prior generations) for multi-threaded environments like virtualization, database and Web serving
