Posted: 08:37PM

After being pushed forward six months, AMD, manufacturer of microprocessors have officially released their new six-core server processors. They are AMD’s first processors to use their Direct Connect Architecture with support for two, four and eight-socket servers. This means there is potential for up to 48 processing cores! The new six-core processors are said to “offer server customers superior value at every price point with unmatched platform flexibility.” We can expect leading OEM manufacturers by next month to release new servers with the new processors, including Cray, Dell, HP, IBM and Sun Microsystems. AMD should also be revealing more details about their 12-Core Magny-Cour soon as well (Two Istanbul's?).

Magny-Cours is indeed a MCM, a pair Istanbul cores in a single package. Direct Connect has been around since dual-core Opteron's though :o
