AMD’s Istanbul processor is finally among us, thanks to an official
this morning, stating that the 6 and 4 core versions of the chip have launched.
The Istanbul processor was designed specifically for virtualization, cloud computing and large database applications. And, according to reports, it offers “superior performance and ensures efficient energy consumption.” It’s also expected that an all AMD server platform will be released in the near future.
Thanks to AMD’s manufacturing spin-off, Global Foundries, they were able to release Istanbul five months ahead of schedule.
