SGI to Deliver XE310, XE1300

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- SGI (NASDAQ:SGIC) today announced it will deliver its new SGI(R) Altix(R) XE310 server and XE1300 cluster this quarter at prices that significantly lower cost of ownership while driving dramatic performance increases over Dual-Core x86-64 processor-based systems.

First unveiled at Supercomputing 2006, the Altix XE310 server features the industry's first system with the innovative new "Atoka" motherboard design, developed in a collaborative effort between SGI and Intel Corporation. The new Atoka board allows the Altix XE310 server to accommodate up to four Quad Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 5300 series into a single 1U chassis. That equates to eight cores per node, or a total of 16 cores per chassis. The Altix XE1300 cluster combines multiple XE310 compute nodes with an Altix XE240 head node in a preconfigured, ultra-dense package for the world's toughest applications.
