IBM last week cut some feature prices on i5 570 and 595 servers to make the cost of building up processor complexes a little less expensive.
On the i5 570, IBM cut the price of a processor core activation by 27 percent to $10,500. The price to add main memory on the i5 570 was also cut, but not so much. The price of the 8/16 GB capacity upgrade on demand (CUoD) memory for the 570, feature 4496, was cut by 8 percent to $18,510; the price of a 16 GB memory increment (feature 4497) was cut by 5 percent
