AMD demos the first x86 dual-core processor

Today, AMD announced it has demonstrated the industry’s first x86 dual-core processor. During demonstrations held at the company’s Austin facilities, AMD showed an HP ProLiant DL585 server powered by four dual-core AMD Opteron processors, manufactured on 90nm silicon-on-insulator process technology.

With a simple upgrade path to more efficient computing, based on AMD’s existing system infrastructure and industry-standard architecture, enterprise customers will have more efficient processing power without the penalties of increased power consumption and heat dissipation.

“This industry milestone changes the dynamics of the computing business,” said Dirk Meyer, executive vice president, AMD Computation Products Group. “Once again, AMD is delivering a simplified approach to more efficient processing power, with products that will deliver multi-core 64-bit computing to our strong customer base.”
