Advanced Micro Devices confirmed the upcoming Opteron 2.0GHz processor release by publishing the Composite Theoretical Performance (CTP) calculations for AMD Opteron microprocessors, including x40, x42, x44 and x46 chips with 1.40, 1.60, 1.80 and 2.0GHz core-clocks respectively.

The CTP calculations are stated in Millions of Theoretical Operations Per Second (MTOPS) and are based upon a formula in the United States Department of Commerce Export Administration Regulations 15 CFR 774 (Advisory Note 4 for Category 4).

Single processor configurations:

  • AMD Opteron Model 140 – 5017MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 142 – 5734MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 144 – 6451MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 146 – 7168MTOPS

Dual processor configurations:

  • AMD Opteron Model 240 – 9567MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 242 – 10933MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 244 – 12300MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 246 – 13667MTOPS

Quad processor configurations:

  • AMD Opteron Model 840 – 18667MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 842 – 21333MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 844 – 24000MTOPS
  • AMD Opteron Model 846 – 26667MTOPS

Composite Theoretical Performance (CTP) calculations are actually not benchmarks, but calculations of peak theoretical performance. We cannot draw any actual conclusions from the figures, though, since AMD publishes the data for the processor with x46 index clocked at 2.0GHz, it means that either the chip is around the corner, or AMD wants everybody to think the 2.0GHz AMD64 CPU for servers and workstations is around the corner.
