AMD launches low power server chips that combine CPUs and GPUs in a single die #OpenCL

SAN FRANCISCO—Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) Wednesday (May 29) launched a new family of low power server processors that the company claims offer twice the performance at greater power efficiency than Intel Corp.'s top performing Atom processor. AMD's Opteron X-Series processors, formerly codenamed Kyoto, are described as the highest density, most power efficient "small core" on the market. This category of chips includes the Intel Atom S1260, Intel's highest performing Atom chip, AMD said. The new AMD processors, X1150 and X2150 beat the Atom S1260 in several performance benchmarks, including single thread and throughput performance with superior power-efficiency, twice the cores and L2 cache with a more advanced pipeline architecture, higher integration and support for up to 32 gigabytes of DRAM—4x more than the Intel Atom processor, AMD said. The X-Series processors...
