Cache Hierarchy and Memory Subsystem of the AMD Opteron Processor


The 12-core AMD Opteron processor, code-named "Magny Cours," combines advances in silicon, packaging, interconnect, cache coherence protocol, and server architecture to increase the compute density of high-volume commodity 2P/4P blade servers while operating within the same power envelope as earlier-generation AMD Opteron processors. A key enabling feature… (More)
