Sun announced two- and four-socket Xeon-based blades today at the Intel Developer Forum, according to an article this morning over at The Register.

The four-socket blade server will fit into Sun’s existing Blade 8000 chassis and should ship in the second half of this year. The system will be based on the four-core “Tigerton” version of Xeon from Intel and will support up to 128GB of memory.

Sun should pump out the two-socket Xeon-based server in the second quarter and will use Intel’s current four-core chip in the system.
