Sun Microsystems and NVIDIA are working together to deliver higher performance from Sun Java workstations.
Each workstation will ship with NVIDIA Quadro® graphics technology. Sun Microsystems says that means they'll be delivering big 2D and 3D performance improvements, including higher bus bandwidth, increased memory bandwidth, improved rendering speeds, and the ability to deploy data sets up to 16 Gbytes across several operating systems.
It's another step to impact the workstation market, says NVIDIA executive vice president Jeff Fisher.
In other news, Sun has supplied the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research and the San Diego Supercomputer Center Java workstations and Quadro FX graphics. Scientists will use the hardware in their studies of biological structures.
