Sun Microsystems yesterday unveiled enhancements to its flagship mid-range Sun Fire V1280 system, which it claims will boost performance by a third.
The hardware revamp centres on the addition of 1.2GHz processors to the rack-optimised 12-way systems which the firm says are 30 per cent faster than their predecessors.
These latest Netra 1280 models can scale to 12 CPUs and 96GB of memory. They ship with Sun's Dynamic Reconfiguration technology and hot-swappable CPU/memory boards.
"Since its introduction less than a year ago, the Sun Fire V1280 has grown to become one of the most popular systems in Sun's midrange product line, increasing nearly 12 per cent in worldwide shipments quarter-over-quarter, as reported by IDC's Server Tracker Report for the third quarter of 2003," said John Humphreys, IDC research manager, in a statement.
