The HP xw9400, a dual-core AMD Opteron Rev F processor workstation, is based on the highly anticipated dual-core Opteron processor from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Inc. that will, for the first, time utilize "DDR2 memory," said Derek Chan, head of digital operations at DreamWorks on Friday. "It also will have the latest and greatest generation of graphic cards." (HP declined to discuss the xw9400, apparently preferring to detail the product when it is announced.)

Way to change the wording in the title. Might want to fix it.

"HP taps DreamWorks to test xw9400 workstations"

From the article:

"DreamWorks has been tapped to try out the latest and greatest HP workstation before the public gets its hands on it."

"Participating as a test site, DreamWorks will help iron out the kinks in the workstation before HP publicly introduces the machine next month."

The HP xw9400 are a bit overpriced (we have three at work) due to HP gouging.

The new MacPro seems like an AWESOME bargain. Big 3D studios are already leaning towards OS X... maybe the MacPro will push everybody over?

Interestingly, this confirms The Register's earlier report that HP will be launching Socket F models in September instead of August.

Test must have failed at PIXAR.

Pixar has both Opteron and Xeon processors in its server rooms, Brandeau said. The company uses an internal benchmark based on its Renderman technology to evaluate processor performance, adding the best-performing chip at the moment when it needs to increase computing capacity. Right now, Pixar is planning to purchase systems based on Woodcrest and Cloverton, a quad-core processor scheduled to emerge next year, he said.

Peace
Nice find Exit

I think my Inquirer link more appropriate here:

"Pentium D give Opteron run for it's money"

Oh --- yeah, make that 39 locked threads.

Nice find Jack.

Care to start a pool as to when the inevitable #40 will occur?

Oh, BTW, isnt 3 locked threads in one day some kind of record?
What about "time to lock" record? that "AMD’s Best Is Still To Come" got locked mighty fast


Peace
