Fujitsu turns green over Opteron workstation

AMD gabs all about it

Application security programs and practises

AMD has done a bit of public relations dirty work on behalf of a partner by issuing a press release celebrating a new Opteron-based workstation from Fujitsu Siemens.

The Celsius V830 runs on the dual-core Opteron - Models 275, 270 and 265. The usual workstation crowd of graphics freaks and engineers are expected to use the box. The system will join a large family of Opteron workstations available from big boys such as HP and Sun Microsystems and smaller players such as EBS.

While Fujitsu Siemens couldn't muster its own press statement touting the box (that we could find), it did manage to deliver up a quotation for AMD's PR job. Oddly, the quotation answers an unasked question and makes a random plug for "green" computing.

"Fujitsu Siemens Computers has focused its efforts on developing a workstation platform that offers customers high performance combined with optimized ergonomic features," said Andreas Thimmel, a vice president at Fujitsu Siemens. "The answer is the Celsius V830 workstation based on the AMD Opteron processor, offering improved performance for the full range of new graphic applications, along with significantly reduced noise levels. In addition, thanks to Fujitsu Siemens Computers' attention to green technology, we have worked to eliminate hazardous substances from the entire workstation."

The new workstation uses Nvidia's nForce Professional 2200 and 2050 graphics products and has two x16 PCI Express ports. The system ships this month in EMEA and Asia. ®
