With the Profusion chipset delayed yet again, this time until August or September depending on who you ask, this gives the major Unix-on-Intel player, SCO, as well as its server partners Compaq, IBM and HP time to figure out where Profusion servers fit into their marketing plans and product lines.
SCS, which is shortly to become Fujitsu Siemens Computers, opted not to wait for the ProFusion chipset, preferring instead to develop what it calls a third-level cache, which requires a separate board to be included into the server.
High-end server vendors were held up by Intel's delay in getting its Profusion chipset, supporting eight way Xeon servers, to market.
Compaq Computer Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co and Data General Corp have all begun shouting about their eight-way Pentium III Xeon servers even though they don't know quite when they will ship because of Intel Corp's delay in delivering its Corollary Profusion chipset. They are now saying late summer.
HDS did its own implementation of Intel Corp's Corollary Profusion chipset which is driving other eight-ways, which gave it early samples as well boosting Profusion's memory throughput to 1.6Gbps from 1.3Gbps.
It has worked through a first X-Architecture roadmap including clustering, eight-way NT - IBM's eight-way NetFinity servers using the Corollary-based Intel Profusion chipset are due late summer - high-speed interconnects, OnForever hot plug and chip-kill memory.
IBM Corp has revealed details of its forthcoming eight way server - the 8500 - which is based around Intel Corp's Profusion chipset. The server has been developed by IBM's RS/6000 team in Austin, Texas and according to Tikiri Wanduragala, IBM Netfinity manager in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Unix-like features and IBM technologies used in the machine are what set it apart from other Profusion-based servers, such as the new machines due from Compaq Computer Corp and Dell Computer Corp this summer.
Along with the Xeons, Intel also announced the Profusion chipset that enables it to offer its OEMs standard high-volume server technology with up to eight CPUs.
Compaq Computer Corp, Dell Computer Corp and Hewlett-Packard Co were the first systems vendors to announce support for Intel Corp's Profusion chipset yesterday as the basis for eight-way servers.
