AMD Magny-Cours Launched

AMD has launched the Magny-Cours processor, a 12 core multi-processor.

Based around the latest latest core, AMD’s new processor is a 8 or 12 core monster depending on the configuration based on the “Istanbul” core.

Running on Socket G34, with a DDR3 memory controller the socket is planned to be compatible with “Bulldozer” the next generation processor from AMD scheduled for 2011. AMD has performance numbers up comparing its processor to Westmere EP and in its comparisons comes out on top. AMD claims it  uses less power than the equivalent Intel processors with a max ACP of 80W compared to Intel’s TDP of 130W.

“We’ll beat the competition on price, performance and power,” John Fruehe, director of product marketing for servers and workstations at AMD told the Inquirer.

“This is on a par with the original Opteron launch. It’s going to be very interesting to see how the market reacts to this.”
