Default AMD Introduces Opteron Models 852 and 252

SUNNYVALE, CALIF. -- February 14, 2005 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the latest additions to the award-winning AMD OpteronTM processor family - Models 852 and 252. The new models represent the world's highest performing processors for one-way to eight-way x86 servers and workstations.

To enable OEMs and system builders to take advantage of the next generation of I/O technology, AMD also announced the AMD-8132TM HyperTransportTM PCI-X 2.0 tunnel, scheduled to ship for servers and workstations this month. The latest addition to the AMD-8000TM series of chipsets, the AMD-8132 tunnel brings high-performance PCI-X 2.0 connectivity to AMD Opteron processor-based systems with increased throughput, improved RAS capabilities, robust data management and enhanced HyperTransport technology connectivity.

"Since the launch of the AMD Opteron processor, AMD has led the industry with flawless execution on enterprise products and we take great pride in the strong endorsements from our enterprise customers," said Marty Seyer, corporate vice president and general manager of the Microprocessor Business Unit, Computation Products Group, AMD. "These models of the AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture bring the newest level of performance to our customers. The platforms our partners launched today feature the world's highest performing 4P and 2P processors for 32- and 64-bit computing."

AMD has made significant enhancements to the AMD Opteron processor with these new models. Performance-enhancing features include support for SSE3 software instructions as well as an increase in the HyperTransport performance through an increase in bus frequency, to 1GHz.

Server and workstation systems featuring the AMD Opteron processor will soon be enabled with AMD PowerNow!TM technology with Optimized Power Management. "This technology helps to minimize overall power consumption for enterprise IT and workstation customers by decreasing strain on datacenter cooling and ventilation systems," said Seyer.
