AMD today announced that Fujitsu Siemens Computers is offering the CELSIUS V810 high-end workstation based on the AMD Opteron processor 200 Series. This is one of the first workstation design wins with a well-known PC maker for AMD64 technology.
The new workstation is targeted at customers who use compute-intensive applications such as digital content creation (DCC), computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), and scientific and visualization software. Workstations based on the AMD Opteron processor allow end users to run their existing 32-bit applications and provide an easy upgrade path to 64-bit computing when needed.
Users of high-end graphical workstation applications are continuously looking for more computing power to get their job done in less time. They are looking for more addressable memory to edit and move huge data models in real time. The AMD Opteron processor can deliver the computing power and the large memory address space that is needed to move to the next level in professional workstation applications.
Build upon AMD 8000 core-logic, the CELSIUS V810 workstation may be equipped with up to 16GB of DDR SDRAM memory, U320 SCSI controller as well as NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics card, including the latest 3000 flavour.
