AMD Intel NvidiaThe US based semiconductor manufacturer Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) wants to take a bite of the booming telecom and networks sectors. Most recently company announced the launch of its embedded processors, the Opteron 4300 Series. The processor line is equipped with new Piledriver core with similar power bands.

Company said that new processors are designed especially for the network and telecom consumers who need to work under the Network Equipment Building System environment load. The processors are capable of delivering 10 to 15% more performance than the previous models.

At ambient temperatures of nearly 55 degrees the Opteron 4300 series processors can run at a TDP of 35 to 65 watts.

Moreover, Advanced Micro Devices also modified its Opteron 4300 embedded series for high storage applications. By providing performance for heavy network connectivity and disk throughput the embedded series is a stunning offer.

According to AMD the Opteron 4300 embedded series models are equipped with peak levels of 26 GB a second bandwidth and also support DDR3 1600 environments. These tiny chips are no doubt a suitable package for network systems with high memory bandwidth.

AMD experts also say that its Opteron 4300 series deliver I/O connectivity for interfaces like PCIe Generation second, including SAS, FCoE, Infiniband and Ethernet with 10 GB capacity.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) also introduces AES encryption acceleration in its Opteron series to secure the transactions and expeditious encryption. These functions make these chips supportive of streamlining the security authentication process.

AMD rival Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has won the initial round of a patent infringement case. According to law experts this case could threaten some jobs at Intel manufacturing plants in US.

According to a notice issued by the judge, David Shaw, the US based semiconductor manufacturer didn’t infringe the patents of X2Y Attenuators. David Shaw is a US International Trade Commission judge.

Law experts now expect a review of the statement by the judge to be executed by a full commission. If the decision gets rejected it would result in blockage of imports of products if they infringe US patents.
