Leveraging AMD value

Opteron 6000 series 8
-

and 12
-
core processors


The AMD Opteron 6000 series processors introduce


a new level of value for 4
-
socket systems



The AMD architecture utilizes the same processors


for both 2
-
socket and 4
-
socket systems,


eliminating

the processor price premium traditionally


associated with 4
-
socket processors



The x3755 M3 is optimized to leverage the value of AMD, providing 4
-
socket performance
and memory capacity without higher per
-
processor pricing vs. 2
-
socket systems



The x3755 M3 is well suited for applications that benefit from a 4
-
processor system with solid
performance and a large memory footprint


Mid
-
size virtualization environments, infrastructure, HPC, mid
-
