InfoWorld calls Ultra 40 M2 "Most Powerful Workstation You Can Buy"


InfoWorld posted a very positive review of the Ultra 40 M2 that highlights the new look and feel, as well as the performance enhancements. This blog review goes into detail on the operating systems with a brief look at performance on Windows XP 64, Vista, Red Hat and Fedora. The reviewer, Paul Venezia calls the Ultra 40 M2 "the most powerful x86_64 workstation you can buy today."

Paul also praises the graphics functionality of the workstation highlighting specifically the Quadro 550 graphics adapter. He states: "The graphics performance is phenomenal, with quick testing of GLXGears showing around 15k frames per second at 1280x1024."

Comments:

Apple came out with the 8 core 64bit Xeon based workstation today. Fully decked out with 8 cores, 16GB RAM, 4 750GB drives, dual video cards (each dual-link), it comes to about $10,000. Cheaper, faster and better configured than the U40 M2.

Of course, in all fairness, Apple just released this machine today.
