AMD introduces 12-core CPU

Today I read a blog on the website of AMD and saw that the introduced the first 12-core cpu. For the VMware community this is a great improvement. More cores in a server is better performance! To bad VMware adjusted there license model to number of cores rather than uses CPU sockets.

The price isn’t that big (for 12-cores that is… ;-)), 254,- EUR for 8-cores and EUR 1078,- for 12-cores.

The CPU is bigger than his little brother and has 1974 pins. The CPU uses the G23-chipset.
