The AMD Opteron 6200 Outperforms the 6100

The AMD Opteron 6000 series continues marching forward with each new innovation building upon the capabilities and possibilities of the past. With the latest AMD Opteron 6200 processors now on the shelves, there is great hidden value to uncover. The highlight and the hype of the Opteron 6200 series has been mostly centered around the 16-core Interlagos, but there are some significant advantages in the 12-core options.

At core parity, the 6200 series outperforms the 6100 with superior clock, cache, and energy efficiency at only a fraction of the price. Let me illustrate.

Processor Wattage Price
AMD 6180SE 12-Core 2.50 Ghz 12 mb Cache 140W $1655.45
AMD 6238 12-Core 2.60 Ghz 16mb Cache 115W $498.33

These are two AMD processors (one 6100 series and one 6200 series) that we have used in our systems. Notice something about the figures?

  • The 6238 has a slightly higher clock speed (2.6 vs. 2.5Ghz)
  • The 6238 has greater cache (16mb vs. 12 mb)
  • The 6238 has lower power consumption (115W vs. 140W)
  • The 6238 costs under one-third the price ($498.33 vs. $1655.45)

Once again…

At core parity, the 6200 series outperforms the 6100 with superior clock, cache, and energy efficiency at only a fraction of the price.
