IVM is about to announce a new lower-end Power server designed to run Linux.
IBM has put the two-processor OpenPower 710 up for sale in the UK. (IBM kindly pulled the linked web site down about an hour after this story first appeared. Thankfully, there is still a cached version here.) The sample configuration for the rackmount system shows it running on 1.65GHz Power5 chips. The new box will fit in below the four-processor OpenPower 720 released last September.
