Sun releases Xeon servers

Vendor returns to Intel chips

Eight months after it agreed to begin using Intel's x86 chips again, Sun Microsystems has announced two new rack-mounted server releases built around Xeon processors.

The Sun Fire X4450 can hold four of Intel's Xeon 7300 quad-core processors and the Sun Fire X4150 has two sockets and can support Intel's older Xeon 5300 quad-core devices or its dual-core chips.

Sun officials say a full line of Intel-based systems will follow. However, the company also plans to ship machines based on AMD's new Opteron quad-core chip by the end of the year.
