AMD Interlagos – the biggest change in x86 servers in a decade – available in Q4

AMD will release the first Opteron server processors to feature its new “Bulldozer”  32-nanometer cores. This is world’s first 16-core x86 processor, codenamed “Interlagos”.

Compatible with existing AMD Opteron 6100 Series platforms and infrastructure, “Interlagos” is expected to launch and be available in partner systems in the fourth quarter of this year. Many of the initial shipments have been earmarked for large custom supercomputer installations that are now underway.

This is a monumental moment for the industry as this first ‘Bulldozer’ core represents the beginning of unprecedented performance scaling for x86 CPUs,” said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, AMD Products Group. “The flexible new ‘Bulldozer’ architecture will give Web and datacenter customers the scalability they need to handle emerging cloud and virtualization workloads.

Acording to AMD, the new processor cores offer up to 50% more throughput as AMD’s current 12-core Opterons while sitting in the same power envelope.

Google Android Platform will be optimized for Intel Architecture

Intel and Google announced their new collaboration project starring the almighty Android platform which will be optimized to run on Intel architecture. The first step will be made for Intel’s family of low power Atom processors but the future versions of the Android platform will support the whole Intel technology. The vice-verse effect is that  Intel architecture will be present on Google products, which include Chrome OS and Google TV along with the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Native Development Kit (NDK).

The joint effort is designed to speed time-to-market of Intel technology-based smartphones running the Android platform. Intel will take advantage of the open-source accessibility of the Android platform to provide its customers with technology products that inspire continued innovation and also help enable powerful personal computing experiences that fully leverage Intel technology across a range of devices. This work will enable mobile device OEMs and wireless operators to draw upon the performance and low power capabilities of Intel® architecture and tap into the scale of the x86 developer ecosystem to further drive the adoption of the Android platform.
