UGS recently decided to support the chip for Intel®'s new Xeon™ processor-based platform designed for workstations. The Intel Xeon processor-based platform has greater application performance and system bandwidth, and eliminates graphic I/O bottlenecks. UGS and Intel worked together to be sure that UGS' NX2 CAD/CAM/CAE program as well as Parasolid V16.0 would support the Intel Xeon-based workstations as 32-bit applications. The chip also features 64-bit extensions and an 800 MHz system bus. For more info, go to www.ugs.com.
