Sun’s recent deal with Intel notwithstanding, they’ve announced new Sparc silicon in their multi-threading lineup, and they’re also tuning up their high end Sun Fire gear.

The “Rock” processor is Sun’s next-generation, high-end SPARC CMT product line, and its design is focused on delivering the performance and energy efficiency of CMT technology to high-end systems. The successful completion of this critical milestone helps keep Sun on track to deliver the first Rock-based systems in the second half of calendar 2008.

Sun is enhancing…its Sun Fire T2000 servers with support for 64 GB of memory and the new faster 1.4GHz UltraSPARC T1 processor.
