At the beginning of 2010 AMD wants to change the server market with their "Magny Cours". At the event around the sixth birthday of the Opteron last week AMD also presented a running "Magny Cours” system.
Every "Magny Cours" CPU had twelve cores and will officially be called Opteron 6000 - together with the four socket Maranello platform the system had 48 active cores.
