IBM To Ship Barcelona-Based Servers

Channel Register, Computerworld

IBM is getting ready to roll out three rack servers built on AMD's quad-core Barcelona chip and geared for those who use memory-intensive scientific, technical and financial applications.The least expensive server, the x3455, is a 48-GB, two-socket system whose price begins at $1,809. The 64-GB x3655 model, also a two-socket model, starts at $2,499. The third model, the 128-GB x3755, has up to four sockets, with prices starting at $3,407. Users can add processors according to their computing needs, according to Big Blue.

IBM joins competitors Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Sun Microsystems in offering hardware loaded with AMD's Barcelona processor, which made it to market in April after a technical problem delayed its September 2007 release. The trio of IBM servers will ship in June.Channel Register, Computerworld
