Sun Announces New Opteron And SPARC Workstations

Sun Microsystems has jazzed up its workstation line with a pair of new systems - one for the Opteron set and another for the UltraSPARC hangers-on.
Both the Ultra 40 (Opteron) and Ultra 45 (UltraSPARC IIIi) workstations ship as two-socket boxes. Sun says they're the best performers in its workstation line. Complementing the horsepower, the systems arrive with a free license for Sun's N1 Grid Engine 6 software.

The Ultra 40 runs on the single and dual-core Opteron 200 Series processors. It also supports Nvidia's nForce Professional 2200 and 2050 GPUs, up to 8 memory slots, 2 PCI slots, 2 PCI Express-x16 slots and 2 PCI Express-x4 slots. Sun prefers that you run Solaris 10 x86 on the hardware, but it will support Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SuSE Enterprise Server and Windows XP Professional in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors of each.
