SGI to release Itanium workstation

Silicon Graphics News

Shortly after rival Hewlett-Packard withdrew from the market, Silicon Graphics has begun selling a new workstation with Intel’s Itanium processor.
SGI’s new system, which costs between $8,500 and $39,000, accommodates one or two Itanium 2 processors and as much as 24GB of memory, the company is expected to announce Tuesday. It’s based on the same technology, including the Linux operating system and ATI graphics hardware, as the company’s higher-end Prism products introduced last October.
