Dell has announced that the company’s range of PowerEdge servers will be receiving AMD’s new Quad-core Opteron processors, allowing them to deliver 79% better performance than the same servers running on Dual-core Opterons.
The PowerEdge SC1435, 2970, M605 and 6950 platforms will all be receiving the new chips.
Additionally, Dell is expanding the PowerEdge server line with the new (Quad-core Opteron powered) T605 tower server, a unit which achieves 23% better performance than an HP ProLiant ML350 G5. Dell says the tower is aimed at SMBs and remote locations and features redundant power supplies, hot plug hard drives and remote management features.
