IBM deploys x64 battle waggon

When Intel was rolling its Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 processors into position on the hills high above the x64 war last Spring, IBM kicked out two boxes and promised it had another one in the works. In three weeks, the System x3690 X5 server - an armored personnel carrier compared to the System x3850 X5 tank and the HX5 blade attack …

HP's Nehalem-EX iron set for June arrival

HP will launch its first wave of "beastie boxes" based on Intel's "Nehalem-EX" Xeon 7500 processors later this month, according to sources familiar with HP's plans.

NEC kicks out glueless Nehalem EX beast

Like all remaining Itanium vendors aside from HP, NEC is shifting its focus to Intel's new Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 processors for its big-iron beasts. The times, they are a-changin'. NEC made a big deal about high-end Itanium-based systems in the prior decade, notching up big benchmark wins with its 16-socket "Azuza" and 32- …

Oracle tunes Solaris for Intel's big Xeons

Word is trickling out of Oracle that is recently acquired Solaris has been heavily tuned to support Intel's new eight-core Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 beasties. Pity, then, Oracle does not yet seem to have a Nehalem-EX box in the field. But the indications are that Oracle is working on an eight-socket box. First, said eight-socket …

Cisco fattens up UCS with Nehalem EX

With its Tuesday introduction of two new servers based on Intel's eight-core Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 processors, server wannabe Cisco Systems can now run with the big boys - well, the midrange boys anyway. Cisco's new machines appear to be the ones that El Reg has been saying the company needs to get into the field to compete …

Whither the HP Nehalem-EX beastie boxes?

Although HP had some machinery at Intel's eight-core Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 launch event last week, it didn't make a peep about its plans for the iron, leaving just about every other major server vendor in the world to do the talking. The company's reticence is odd. HP is the largest server shipper in the world and the second …

Dell gets flexible with server memory chips

Maybe what Intel really needs to do with its future Xeon processors is stop jacking up the core count so high and start putting more memory controllers on the chips and more memory channels in each socket. Maybe Intel should get back into the memory business. When server maker Dell launched its two-socket and four-socket …

IBM goes elephant with Nehalem-EX iron

With so much of its money and profits coming from big Power and mainframe servers, you can bet that IBM is not exactly enthusiastic about the advent of the eight-core "Nehalem-EX" Xeon 7500 processors from Intel and their ability to link up to eight sockets together in a single system image. But IBM can't let other server makers …

The word on the street is that chip maker Intel will finally get around to launching its new Xeon processors on March 16, and AMD will follow up with its new Opterons sometime near the end of the month.

SGI spins up Cyclone HPC cloud

Try it, then rent it or buy it. That's the new mantra from supercomputer maker Silicon Graphics this morning as it launches its own supercomputing on demand offering, dubbed Cyclone.
