(1) Based on AMD's small core Opteron™ processor Model X1150 vs. Intel® Atom™ Model S1260, Intel's highest performance small core processor. Highest density based on cores/rack. Since Opteron X-Series has double the number of cores of Intel Atom S1200 series, it has the double the density among small core x86 processors. Most power efficient small core x86 processor as measured by SPECint®_rate_base2006 estimates divided by TDP.

(2) SPEC and SPECint are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation. The comparison presented reflects competing AMD and Intel 2.0GHz processors. Throughput performance estimates are based on SPECint®_rate_base2006 results using all four threads of each processor. Single thread performance estimates are based on SPECint®_rate_base2006 results using one thread of each processor. The results stated are estimates based on measurements in AMD labs as of May 2, 2013. For the latest SPECint®_rate_base2006 results, visit Configuration information: 1 x AMD Opteron™ processor Model X1150 in "Olive Hill" Reference platform server, 8GB (2 x 4GB DDR3-1600) memory, Red Hat Enterprise Linux® Server Release 6.3 x86_64 OS, GCC 4.7.2 Compiler. 1 x Intel Xeon processor Model S1260 in Supermicro 5017A-EF server, 8GB (2 x 4GB DDR3-1333) memory, Red Hat Enterprise Linux® Server Release 6.3 x86_64 OS, GCC 4.7.2 Compiler.

*Based on the capability of the Kyoto memory controller and expected 16GB DIMM availability.
