HP Announces Six Core Istanbul Workstation

 "HP understands the immense pressure its customers are under to deliver more return on investment in a shorter period of time," said Jeff Wood, director of Worldwide Marketing for workstations at HP. "By providing the most extreme combination of technologies – up to 12 cores in one workstation – HP continues its commitment to bringing customers leading-edge technologies."

Launched last month at Computex Taiwan, the six core Opterons are said to offer an increase in performance of up to 34 percent, while using a similar amount of power to AMD's quad core Opterons. Packing an ATI FirePro V7750 GPU, HP's press release states that the xw9400 has a starting price of $1,899. However, a quick visit to the HP website puts the entry-level version of the xw9400 at $2,599 with a quad core processor. Whether it’s down to human error or HP not updating the site yet, we don’t know but we’ll update as soon as we figure things out.*

*Our lovely commenters figured things out for us. Hat tip goes to bk420 for the link to the base model HP was referring to, which appears to be a special offer. Click here for the deets.
