IBM expects to ship a new 32-processor server based on Intel's Xeon processors in the first half of next year and may begin selling its first high-density "blade" server based on Advanced Micro Devices' (AMD's) Opteron processor, a company executive said in an interview Tuesday.

The new server, which will be able to run a single operating system on as many as 32 processors, will be a successor to IBM's eServer xSeries 445 server.
