Dell and IBM launch new servers based on Intel's Nocona 64-bit Xeon

Posted on Monday, August 02 2004 @ 13:11:36 CEST by

IBM and Dell plan to launch new servers based on Intel's new 64-bit processor, the Nocona.

Dell said that it will begin selling two servers based on Intel's new chips today, and that by October it will have two more servers based on Intel's Nocona 64-bit Xeon processors.

These will be dual-processor systems, and they will come pre-installed with either Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Red Hat Linux 3. They start at $1,799 and $1,899.

Today IBM will start selling eight new servers based on Intel's new Xeon processor. Seven of these will be immediately available, while the eight will be released later this month.
The new abilities of Intel's mainstream business server chip, Xeon, could accelerate the adoption of 64-bit computing in businesses. Microsoft is readying the final version of an operating system that will accommodate Intel's new Xeon, as well as Advanced Micro Devices' Opteron, which has similar features.

Though AMD has tended to play a catch-up role to Intel in chip advances, AMD's Opteron was first to the table with the ability to run in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes.
