Compucon Vanadium Server (Dual Opteron) Debuts Print
August 2004
Compucon officially announced on 2 August 2004 the launch of Vanadium Server based on the innovative AMD K8 platform and x86-64 Opteron processors, following similar announcements made by IBM, HP and Sun previously. This Compucon Vanadium Server is based on AMD 8131 and 8111 chipsets, incorporating Direct Memory Connect and Hyper-Transport technologies for achieving a higher memory transfer rate and I/O throughput bandwidth than the current generation of DX platforms. It is supported by both 32 bit and 64 bit software, and it is stable, fast and relatively inexpensive. Third party evaluations of the new technologies used have been favourable. (Ref: Vanadium is a chemical element commonly used in producing high strength alloys).
