HP launches dual-core AMD Opteron servers

Posted on Thursday, Apr 21 2005 @ 18:19 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
HP today updated its server line with AMD dual-core Opteron models.
The ProLiant DL585 system will be available with all three speed grades of the new Opteron--1.8Gz, 2.0GHz and 2.2GHz--said Steve Cumings, manager of HP's ProLiant Opteron systems group. And in an effort to encourage fast adoption, HP is charging the same for a system with 1.8GHz dual-core processors as it would for the existing products with 2.6GHz single-core chips.
Also introduced was the BL45p blade system, HP's first four-way Opteron blade with a size half of the existing Intel Xeon model. Read more about HP's new dual-core servers at CNET
