AMD Pushes Opteron Clocks to 3 GHz, Will Miss Q1 Revenue Targets
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

With Intel coming on pretty strong with its "Clovertown" Xeon 5300 processors and Advanced Micro Devices having to get to June or July before it gets its own quad-core "Barcelona" Opteron chips out the door, the company has to do something to make its Opterons appealing. To that end, AMD has pushed up the clock speeds on the dual-core Rev F Opterons to 3 GHz to compete better in the dual-core X64 chip space. READ MORE >

Xandros Server 2 To Get Integrated Virtualization and Messaging
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Last May, commercial Debian Linux distributor Xandros jumped into the server fray with its Xandros Server. In the next few weeks, the company will be releasing a new version of its server stack, including support for server virtualization and two distributions, one keyed to SMB shops and the other for larger enterprises. Xandros will also break away its Xandros Management Console from its Linux distro and offer it as a separate product that runs on Windows workstations and can manage other Linuxes. The company will also partner to offer email messaging and groupware bundles. READ MORE >

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Server maker IBM is prepping its fourth generation of chipsets for creating scalable SMP servers out of Intel's Xeon MP processors. The X4 chipset, which according to Jay Bretzmann, marketing manager for high-end System x servers at Big Blue, does not have a code name, has features that make it suitable for multicore processors with very large memories.

The X Factor: Virtualization Belongs in the System, Not in the Software
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

While server virtualization has been a hot topic for a number of years now, and industry juggernaut VMware is poised to break $1 billion in sales in 2007 for its various virtualization hypervisors and related products, this is still a nascent market--at least on X64 server platforms.
