Compaq to announce 4-way PIII Xeons at CeBIT

And outline their 8-way Sabers with tweaks

PC company Compaq is expected to announce Thursday details of their four way Xeon servers. It will make the announcement as it outlines the eight-way systems, based on so-called Intel Saber technology, set to arrive in April. The Register will have a team of reporters at CeBIT, held in Hannover, Germany, and will file stories from the show. Other vendors, including IBM, are expected to announce their Pentium III Xeons soon afterwards. Last month, Big Blue said there was likely to be only a seven per cent performance boost over the Pentium II Xeon platform. ®
