Desktop Engineering: Sun Ultra 40 M2 -- Mission Accomplished
By chhandomay on Mar 28, 2007
Desktop Engineering posted a very positive review of the Ultra 40 M2 workstation.
The reviewer, Mark Clarkson, was very impressed with the overall packaging of the Ultra 40 M2, particularly highlighting how easy it is to open the case and make changes. His evaluation also points out despite its power, the Ultra 40 is the "quietest system currently running in [his] basement." He also praised the graphics and clarity of the Sun monitor that was shipped with the workstation.
Mark compared the applications and performance of the Ultra 40 M2 versus the system he reviewed in July. In all instances the Ultra 40 M2 outperformed the original Ultra 40 -- as expected. However, he was very impressed with how much the new Ultra 40 M2 outperformed. Mark highlights various tests he performed where the Ultra 40 M2 outperformed the original Ultra 40 anywhere from 15 to 100 percent. He states: "Once you figure out the best way to load up the processors and memory, this machine can really fly."
A really good one!!!
