AMD announced that its Opteron processor has set a new record for performance on VMware VMmark virtualization benchmark for x86 servers using AMD Opteron quad-core processors. The system that set the new record for the benchmark is a HP ProLiant DLO585 G5. AMD says that it now owns the top three spots on 16-core VMmark benchmarks.

AMD says that its Rapid Virtualization Indexing technology is one of the main reasons it is able to perform so well on the virtualization benchmark. The technology allows fast switching between virtual machines on servers running AMD processors.

"AMD has an extensive track record of helping enterprises face demanding challenges by enabling flexible, virtualized systems that address major issues including server consolidation, business continuity and disaster recovery," said Patrick Patla, general manager, Server and Workstation Business, AMD. "AMD's latest benchmark result underscores the fact that Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors are more than just four cores and provide innovations such as AMD Virtualization with Rapid Virtualization Indexing to help deliver an ideal platform for addressing real-world data center needs."
