Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware SGI has announced that their Silicon Graphics 750 system for Linux will be available in July. Based on the 64-bit Intel Itanium processor, the system is designed for high-performance computing.
The Silicon Graphics 750 features advanced computational processing in a compact form factor capable of scaling up to two processors and 16GB of memory. The availability of the Silicon Graphics 750 will accommodate and enable the most demanding power users in the technical and high-performance computing markets such as computational fluid dynamics, mechanical computer-aided engineering (MCAE), computational chemistry, scientific computing and visualization.
This is SGI's first entry into the Itanium-based workstation arena. Given that the Itanium was designed to be scalable up to 512 processors, we can expect some serious hardware soon.
