Red Hat reveals that RHEL 6.2 will support AMD's Bulldozer power saving features


Kananov's stressing of Red Hat working "with AMD in particular" is a big endorsement of AMD's Bulldozer Opteron processors. Red Hat might be a relatively unfashionable Linux distribution for consumers but it holds considerable clout in the industry, with revenues exceeding $1bn a year, and it is the basis for the popular enthusiast and web site server Linux distribution CentOS.

Intel might contribute a significant amount of code into the Linux kernel, but Red Hat's public support for AMD's server chips shows that the company has support in the right places.
