Servers in any type of business handle a great amount of data and responsibility. Any given server needs to be reliable and capable enough to provide great performance at all times. Unlike mainstream PCs, servers run applications that are extremely demanding and taxing. And they have to run these applications for extended periods of time.
Thankfully, there are processors available for such an important responsibility. The AMD Opteron 8218 processor is one such component. Itâ€™s perfect for handling large server or workstation-type workloads.
Budget-minded desktop owners do not have to lose hope in finding the right processor for their system. The humble yet capable AMD Athlon 64 LE-1640 is a single-core processor that sports a very low price tag and is energy-efficient to boot.
It has a thermal design power (TDP) of only 45 watts, which is pretty low considering its other features. The low TDP contributes much to its energy-efficiency since the rated TDP is actually the maximum power it will draw when running applications in real-time. So, you wouldnâ€™t have to worry about rigging up an ultra-expensive cooling system unless your configuration recommends otherwise.
