Default AMD doubles down on existing Opteron server sockets


As El Reg anticipated earlier this week, the new upper management at AMD has come to its senses and figured out that moving to a new core and two new sockets for its Opteron line in 2012 was not a particularly good idea for its own finances, or those of the server makers who it wants to peddle Opteron-based iron. And so, that plan has been scrapped.

Instead, AMD is going to field new 32 nanometer processors based on the forthcoming "Piledriver" core design and jam them into the same G34 and C32 sockets, meaning that HP, Dell, Super Micro, IBM, Acer, and a handful of other box makers will not have to engineer new motherboards and systems.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
