AMD Opteron 6200 packs more cores for your server needs

Server processors, like the new AMD Opteron 6200, normally don’t capture much attention but this chip just so happens to pack in 16 cores into a handy package that should be a drop in replacement for existing AMD based servers which is especially enticing to the companies running high performance super computers. The CPUs are based on the Bulldozer design that sports a fancy new design with a number of new instructions that the HPC crowd is more likely to leverage. The rest of the server buying world will likely make use of the chips in virtual machines and other environments where chip density is important.
