Ashlee Vance over at El Register ran a piece yesterday with advance news that IBM is upgrading its Cluster 1350 line.
…customers will find the 1U x3455 available with 95W dual-core Opterons running at 1.8GHz, 2.6Ghz and 3.0GHz. That’s because IBM has picked up the fresh Opterons AMD released in April that kicked the dual-core part to 3.0GHz for the first time. So, a similar situations holds true for the 4U Opteron-based x3755 system.
Complementing the Opteron systems, IBM ships the Cluster 1350 unit with Xeon-, Power- and Cell-based servers too.
IBM has also added new networking options with IB from Cisco and Voltaire. Expect to see the official announcement from the company this week, if it doesn’t get lost in the torrent of news from ISC.
