Today Sun completed the matched pair of announcements it started last week with its 2U quad quad-core Intel Xeon 7300 server.

Sun logoSun Microsystems, Inc. today announced the Sun Blade X8440 Server Module, the world’s first blade server designed for Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. Sun also previewed a next-generation four-socket, 2U quad-core server that will be available by the end of the year, powered by Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. Building on Sun’s momentum in the x86 server market, both systems enable customers to take advantage of Sun’s unique systems design approach built around the power of the Solaris Operating System (OS) and AMD’s much-anticipated native quad-core processors.
