Posted on Tuesday, Sep 27 2005 @ 08:14 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Dell today announced dual-core dual-socket servers and workstations which should deliver up to 52 percent more performance than single-core systems.

The dual-socket Dell PowerEdgeT 1850, 2800, 2850 and 1855 blade servers, along with the Dell Precision 470 and 670 workstations, will now incorporate dual-core, Intel Xeon processors. These new processors incorporate the same Intel chipsets used in single-core Intel Xeon processors for servers and workstations which give customers an easy migration path to multi-core computing.

The PowerEdge 1850, 1855, 2800, and 2850 servers can be pre-ordered today for NDA customers of Dell with factory-installed Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (32/64-bit edition) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (32/64-bit edition). Prices for the servers start at $2,448, $2,448, $2,548, and $2,748, respectively. The Dell Precision 470 and 670 can be pre-ordered today for NDA customers of Dell with factory-installed Microsoft Windows XP Professional (32/64-bit edition) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (32/64-bit edition).

Prices for the workstations start at $2,479 and $2,779 respectively. General availability information and ordering for both families of products will be available in the coming month.
