3AMD’s Low-Power SeaMicro Microservers
Microservers—highly dense, power-efficient systems—could become a highly contested segment of the server market. Intel is attacking the space with its Atom platform—most recently the release of “Avoton” (for servers) and “Rangeley” (for networking systems)—while AMD is leveraging its acquisition last year of SeaMicro and also is partnering with ARM. Here is a SeaMicro SM15000 Opteron-based system, which offers up to 64 eight-core chips in a single system.
4AMD in HP’s Project Moonshot Strategy
Hewlett-Packard is building small, highly efficient server modules in its Moonshot initiative. While the first of the Moonshot servers will be powered by Intel Atom chips, the tech giant will leverage other vendors’ chips in future versions, including those from AMD and ARM. This Moonshot cartridge is powered by AMD’s “Kyoto” Opteron processors.

6The Oculus Rift Virtual Reality System
AMD showed off a system powered by its “Kaveri” desktop chip and running a version of Oculus’ Rift virtual reality game, which includes a pair of goggles that brings the user into the game. Oculus is not yet selling the game to the public; it’s recently been released to some developers, according to AMD officials.
