Enterprise Linux Today: IBM Unveils Ultra-Powerful Workstations
Feb 07, 2002, 02:31 (18 Talkback[s])
"In a three-pronged assault on the $7.5 billion
workstation market, IBM today introduced a line-up of powerful
UNIX, Linux and Microsoft Windows-based IntelliStation workstations
that offer up to two-and-a-half times faster graphics performance
than Sun's fastest workstation.
Providing better price/performance than Sun machines, the new
IntelliStation family also includes the next generation of IBM
video monitors, which can display much higher definition images
than monitors from other vendors.
Today's announcement marks the first time that IBM's UNIX
workstations have joined the company's Intel-processor-based
machines under the IntelliStation brand. By offering Linux on
IntelliStation, IBM intends to capitalize on the growing popularity
of the open source operating system among customers."
