Fujitsu Siemens Offers High-end Workstation Based on AMD Opteron

12/19/2003 - Fujitsu Siemens Computers adds a new member in the high-end sector to its traditionally successful workstation family.

With the new CELSIUS V810, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is the first leading supplier to offer a high-end workstation based on an AMD OpteronTM processor, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit computing. The resultant performance level of up to two AMD OpteronTM processors makes it the ideal system for all workstation target markets, including CAD (Computer Aided Design), CAE (Computer Aided Engineering), DCC (Digital Content Creation), visualization, virtual reality and software development. The workstation can be integrated in standard 19-inch racks and, thanks to its cluster capability, used as a high-performance compute node. The CELSIUS V810 is currently being certified for all major ISV applications.

The CELSIUS V810 is especially suited for the use of compute- and graphics-intensive workstation applications that have been optimized for multiprocessor operation, where the AMD OpteronTM architecture ensures outstanding system performance. Unlike conventional 32-bit architectures, the CELSIUS V810 can be equipped with up to 16 GB main memory which can be fully used by 64-bit applications. The workstation can be configured with an extensive selection of professional graphics cards with OpenGL and DirectX support.

"With our latest workstation CELSIUS V810, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is able to offer its customers an innovative product which, on the one side, covers the performance demand of high end workstation users and at the same time, supports the ROI requirements from a company's point of view”, commends Peter Eßer, Executive Vice President Volume Products Fujitsu Siemens Computers. “Our dual Opteron based CELSIUS workstation offers the customer a smooth transition path from today's 32-bit operating system and application to 64-bit technology.”

“By choosing the AMD OpteronTM processor to power the new Celsius V810 high-end graphical workstation, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is providing customers with an extraordinary workstation in terms of performance and simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing,” said Henri Richard, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales & Marketing, AMD. “Paired with the expertise of Fujitsu Siemens Computers in the workstation area, it’s a perfect match for workstation users.”

The AMD OpteronTM processor was developed with a view to optimizing the use of 64-bit applications, but also provides unrestricted support for existing 32-bit applications. It therefore permits simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing and offers users a simple means of migrating existing 32-bit application environments to 64-bit environments. Leading manufacturers of workstation software have recognized the potential here and are preparing their applications for 64-bit operation.

The new workstation is now available from retail outlets.
