Positive Sun Ultra 20 M2 review in Cadalyst


Today, Cadalyst Magazine posted a positive evaluation of the Sun Ultra 20 M2 Workstation. The review is a presentation of the new features of this workstation including the design and the overall performance of the machine while running the Cadalyst C2006, the MAXBench4 and SPEC ViewPerf 9 benchmarks.

The reviewer, Patrick Davis, tested an Ultra 20 M2 running 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP. He notes that while Windows is not shipped pre-installed on the Ultra 20, the workstation does support Windows with no problems.

Overall, Patrick is quite positive on the workstation. Specifically, he is very impressed with the structure of the workstation and the quietness of the fans: "After roughly two seconds [after start up], the fans power down and the Ultra 20 M2 makes less noise than my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop...It's definitely the quietest workstation I have used."
