[ZDnet] AMD refreshes Opteron server chips, says Bulldozer on track

Advanced Micro Devices on Monday launched updated Opteron server chips in a bid to play catch up to Intel’s Xeon platform.

As noted on AMD’s earnings conference call last month, AMD was disappointed with its 2010 server chip performance. Steve Demski, product manager of AMD’s server division, said the company “didn’t see share pick up like we wanted in 2010.”

To remedy that situation, AMD launched five new chips, four of which jump in frequency by 200 Mhz. AMD’s 12-core models are designed for scalable applications and 8-core chips are designed to applications that need more clock speed.

So these Opty's will be a replacements for current, operating servers? How does this work? I mean are these processors meant to be replacements for older ones or for new, complete farms?
