Compaq boots 64-bit NT on AlphaServer

Eckhard -- he don't like Intel, does he?

Highly reliable sources said that Compaq has successfully booted 64-bit Windows NT on the forthcoming Compaq AlphaServer DS20. The work was done by the handful of Compaq developers on the "Sundown" 64-bit NT project. This development will fortify the Alpha value proposition: there is no Pentium, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, or RePentium chip that can deliver 27 SPECint95, 58 SPECfp95, and support 64-bit memory addressing. Furthermore the SPEC numbers will be obsoleted by EV67 parts in just a few months time. ®
