Sun's new Intel-based workstation is now available

Today we announced the Sun Ultra 24 Workstation, our first quad-core x64 workstation. Powered by Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Quad and Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core Processors, the new workstation quickens design cycles, accelerates decision making and gets products to market faster. It offers the broadest range of OS support, including 32- and 64-bit versions of the Solaris OS, Windows, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux.


The Sun Ultra 24 is available now via the Sun Web site and Sun Startup Essentials. It will also be available through the Try and Buy program beginning Nov. 12.


Beta customers such as Wolfram Research and Volkswagen have already been testing out the Ultra 24.


The Sun Ultra 24 has achieved three new benchmarks, including new world-record performance results on the Mathematica benchmark.


The reviews of Sun Ultra 24 should start appearing soon. In the mean time, check out the InternetNews.com article on the announcement. And here is the Register story.

if you read the register article, or indeed this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_386i, you would realise the title of your post is not quite correct!
It may be the first in a long time, but not the first.

Hey Chhandomay,

I wanted to let you know that, as of this afternoon, the Ultra 24 has now been certified by Canonical for Ubuntu.

Jason,
Acknowledging my mistake -- it is incorrect to say "first." I changed it.
