Has AMD Secured A Spot In The Datacenter?

When AMD exited the server market back in 2012, it held 10% market share. While not a large chunk of the market, the legacy of Opteron and relationships with OEMs and big datacenter customers translated into market significance. This was important, as this market significance assured broad software ecosystem support when AMD released a new …

RESEARCH PAPER: Power / Performance Determinism

Today’s demanding workloads and complex environments leave businesses looking for every ounce of available performance from their systems. While CPU vendors strive to deliver the highest level of performance at all times, CPU manufacturing processes leave some variability that prevents vendors from capitalizing on every last drop of performance in an individual CPU. Because CPU …
