Confirm EVC for AMD processors

Jump to solution

Hi,

Can anyone you tell me if AMD eight-core 6128 CPUs are EVC compatible with AMD 8439 SE CPUs?
Looking here it suggests that it is:
The CPU's are:
Opteron 8400-series "Istanbul" (45 nm)
All models support: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4a, Enhanced 3DNow!, NX bit, AMD64, AMD-V (SVM & Rapid Virtualization Indexing), HT-Assist
Opteron 6100-series "Magny-Cours" (45 nm)
All models support: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4a, Enhanced 3DNow!, NX bit, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, AMD-V (SVM & Rapid Virtualization Indexing), HT-Assist

Just want to make 100% sure before confirming!

Thanks!

According to the EVC table this should work fine, since both processors are supported with the same EVC baselines. If you plan to add any Gen4 CPUs later, you may want to select the "AMD Opteron™ Generation 3 (no 3DNow!™)" EVC Mode which is supported for both, Gen3 as well as Gen4 CPUs..
