AMD Redraws Server Processor Roadmap

Michael Feldman of HPC Wire has this story about recent changes to the AMD processor roadmap:
“Further out, AMD has a chance to catch Intel with the third generation Opteron processors. Two new offerings, the six-core “Sao Paolo” and the twelve-core “Magny Cours,” will be developed for a new platform — what the company’s calling Socket G43. Taking a cue from Intel’s multipackaging approach, the twelve-core Magny Cours is actually two six-core chips jammed into the same socket.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
