Advanced Micro Devices Opteron series have expanded with additional product. The company earlier this month added a six core Opteron processor codenamed; Istanbul. A six core Opteron in two flavors; HE and SE models. The HE is a 6 core processor with a 55w consumption for low wattage applications. The SE is a six core model with a 105w for high performance computing. With a simple BIOS update for (some) server and workstation boards, the Instanbul can be swapped in place of the previous Barcelona Quad Core Opterons.
