Sun processor speed increases, workstation price reductions

Posted by Bill Bradford on Feb 1, 2005

Sun has announced speed increases to 1.6Ghz for the UltraSPARC IIIi processors used in the SunBlade 1500 and 2500 workstations, as well as a promotion where customers can get a SunPCI-IIIpro card for $1 when purchased with a SunBlade 1500 or 2500.

In addition, customers can upgrade Xeon-based workstations and get $600 (USD) off the price of a new AMD Opteron processor-based Sun Java Workstation W1100z or W2100z. Solaris OS developers and system administrators can get 25 percent off the price of an upgraded Sun Blade workstation, and education customers can get 45 percent off the price of a new Sun Java Workstation.
