AMD has introduced to MMO fans around the world brand new tech that will revolutionize the MMO world. AMD has "deployed an AMD SeaMicro server with the SeaMicro Freedom™ fabric to power a high-performance mobile gaming unit (MGU.) The MGU, which is a 48-foot bus, was created as part of the launch for its new game "FireFall."
I know how cool is that. Here is some of the specs of this state of the art server:
"AMD's SeaMicro SM10000-XE server contains 256 CPU cores and the 1.28 terabits per-second Freedom™ fabric, which removes the constraints of traditional servers while delivering up to 50 percent reduction in power consumption. It is the industry's highest density, most energy-efficient x86 server. By integrating switching functionality, it removes the need for top of rack switches, terminal servers and hundreds of networking devices and cables simplifying installation, management and maintenance."
Amazing eh! the artical goes on to say...
"The mobile gaming unit would not have been possible without AMD's SeaMicro server. It allowed us to install a data center into a closet on a bus, yet achieve performance equal to one of 'World of Warcraft's' original data centers," said Mark Kern, so FireFall is taking on Blizz lol ok I just hope that AMD did not make the wrong choice with FireFall to interduce us this great new tech after all I dont see FireFall standing the test of time as a MMO game.
Well my hats off to AMD may they endever to wow us with thier contribution to the MMO world.
