NWF: In an effort to help enterprise users get a handle on power and heat issues associated with new server designs that pack more processing punch in smaller spaces, Advanced Micro Devices Monday announced that systems built with its 32/64-bit Opteron processor will include power management technology by the middle of the year.
Called PowerNow!, the technology has been available on AMD’s mobile chips since 2000. PowerNow! will be included in Opteron-based servers and workstations in the first half of next year, says Brent Kerby, AMD product marketing manager.
