Dell has introduced a PowerEdge server that can be used in a 2U rack with Advanced Micro Devices' latest Opteron processors to deliver up to 96 cores for high-performance computing. Dell is calling the PowerEdge C6145 a "hyperscale-inspired server," because two systems, each with four of AMD's new 12-core Opteron chips, can deliver a maximum of 96 cores in a 2U rack that's 3.5 inches high and 19 inches wide. The C6145 stems from Dell's customer design work in large data centers and cloud computing environments, executives say. The new server is available with AMD's Opteron 6180 SE, the latest high performance server processor from the chipmaker. The 6180 SE has 12 cores and a clock speed for 2.5 GHz. AMD also released on Monday a 12-core mainstream model, the 2.3 GHz 6176, and three eight-core Opterons. All five chips are member of AMD's new Opteron 6100 series. The Dell C6145 is designed for HPC applications, video rendering, virtualization and electronic design automation. All the applications require a large amount of computational power through large core count, high memory density and lots of I/O expansion. Besides core count, the C6145 scales to up 1 TB of memory.
