The AMD Athlon MP 2800+ is based on a new core that features more L2 cache than previous AMD Athlon MP processors, and allows additional information to be stored closer to the processor for improvedperformance. Designed for entry-level servers and workstations, the AMD Athlon MP processor 2800+ complements AMD’s multiprocessing lineup. All AMD Athlon MP processors take advantage of AMD’s stableSocket A infrastructure, which provides an easy upgrade path for IT managers and delivers the compatibility that can help lower a company’s total cost of ownership.
â€œAMD works closely with computer manufacturers to bring the right technology and performance levels to enterprises,â€ said Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager of AMD’s MicroprocessorBusiness Unit. â€œWith the AMD Athlon MP processor 2800+, we are helping to ensure that companies currently standardized on 32-bit applications receive the reliability and price/performance they needfrom their servers and workstations for mission-critical applications.â€
Many of the world’s most prestigious universities, research laboratories and leading corporations use AMD Athlon MP processors for compute-intensive applications.
Aventis, a world leader in the discovery, development and marketing of innovative pharmaceutical products, relies on AMD Athlon MP processor-based systems to help reduce time-to-market forpotentially life-saving drugs. â€œOur 34-node cluster computer powered by AMD Athlon MP processors gives us the floating-point advantage we need to screen the vast amounts of data our researchrequires,â€ said Anil Nair, senior associate scientist, Aventis. â€œIt’s making a substantial difference in the way we do research, and our goal is to double our parallel processing capability in thecoming year to increase our researchers’ productivity.â€
