The latest AMD Opteron processor significantly ups workstation performance compared to previous generation Opteron processors, while also decreasing power consumption at idle. The result is an HP workstation tuned for high-end applications such as engineering, 3-D digital content creation, oil and gas and video editing.
In addition to its performance improvements,, the HP xw9400 ushers in a host of environmental benefits. The system is registered as an Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Gold product, the highest rating available. All HP workstations are more than 90 percent recyclable by weight and incorporate a tool-less chassis design for quick and easy upgrades by hand. Each workstation includes an 80 PLUS power supply, which is more efficient than a standard power supply, reducing both overall energy usage and the amount of waste heat released into the environment.
The HP xw9400 with the new Shanghai Opteron processor is priced starting at $2,303.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
